Two faceted oblong chrysoprase (glass?) stones with a faceted round collet-set crystal at the bottom form these classic 1920s Art Deco earrings. Each stone is separated by a ring link, so there’s plenty of movement here. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. I have a number of chrysoprase pieces that would compliment these earrings – scroll down to see them.
Polished disks of onyx and chrysoprase glass form this Art Deco necklace. The center beads are thicker, faceted, and graduated in size. This vibrant piece, in a striking color combination, closes with an older tongue-in-groove clasp that looks like a narrow tube when closed.

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