"STERLING GERMANY"

Faceted chrysoprase (glass?) stones are mounted in sterling silver in this outstanding Art Deco bracelet from Germany. Even if this piece weren’t marked, the stones, setting, prongs, and tongue-in-groove clasp all speak to the bracelet’s origins. In my opinion, the German costume jewelry makers in the 1920s-1930s were at the head of the class!  This bracelet coordinates well with several other Art Deco chrysoprase pieces — scroll down to see a selection.

    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.
