    Scarab Bracelet in Sterling by W.E. Richards

    , ,

    This vintage scarab bracelet has sterling silver links and mounts with molded-glass stones. The colors are tiger’s eye, chrysoprase, carnelian, lapis lazuli, and variegated agates. This piece is a celebration of a quintessential Art Deco motif. By the well-known maker W.E. Richards, this jewel closes with a spring-ring clasp. The multi-colored agates are unusual, and the variety of colors and classic design make this bracelet extremely versatile. You could emphasize one of the colors by wearing earrings or a necklace that matches one of the stones. Scroll down to see some suggestions. This bracelet was made in the 1920s or in the 1950s, during an Art Deco Revival when scarab bracelets were again all the rage.

    Chrysoprase, Marcasite & Sterling German Brooch

    , ,

    This Art Deco marcasite brooch with three faceted chrysoprase (glass?) stones set in sterling silver exhibits typical German construction and their aesthetic of the 1920s-1930s. The 935 mark refers to a higher silver content than the sterling standard, which is 925 parts per 1000 – not uncommon in German pieces of the era. This brooch was in my personal collection and was among the first pieces I bought when I focused on Art Deco jewelry. You can wear this petite brooch at the throat of a blouse or on the collar of a jacket to great effect. Scroll down to see Art Deco chrysoprase earrings that look lovely with this piece.

    Chrysoprase & Crystal Chicklet-Style German Art Deco Necklace

    , ,

    Although unmarked, the design and quality of this 1920s-1930s Art Deco chrysoprase (glass?) and crystal chicklet-style necklace make me think it was made in Germany. The faceting of the crystals is superb, and the mountings of the stones are highly-decorated. The silver-tone metal may be sterling, although the stone frames are unmarked. This gorgeous piece from my personal collection closes with an older-style spring-ring clasp. Scroll down to see Art Deco earrings and bracelets to wear with this necklace.

    Chyrsoprase, Onyx, & Ruby Disk Art Deco Choker with Rondelles

    , ,

    This Art Deco necklace features faceted, opaque chrysoprase, onyx and ruby glass disks and rhinestone rondelles. The components are strung on metal chain. The necklace closes with a screw-in clasp formed by two of the disks. Based on the construction of this piece, I think it is European in origin. As often happens with necklaces like this one, the chain has stretched. If you don’t need the full 15″ length and the extra chain bothers you, you could get it cut by an expert jeweler. This colorful and versatile necklace can be worn with many of my other Art Deco pieces, depending on which color you wish to emphasize — scroll down to see a selection. Or wear your real or faux diamond studs to complete the look.
