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.
Faceted, square- and triangle-shaped chrysoprase-glass stones mounted in silver-tone metal form these simple, yet elegant 1920s Art Deco earrings. These all-original screw-back earrings have a nice swing and can be modified for pierced ears. These earrings coordinate well with my other chrysoprase Art Deco pieces — scroll down to see them.
