"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.

    These Art Deco dangle earrings feature two faceted, oblong chrysoprase (glass?) stones with a faceted, round collet-set crystal at the bottom. Each stone is separated by a ring link, so there’s plenty of movement here. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. Note that although the open-back bottom crystals appear dark in the first photo, they are, in fact, clear and sparkly (as in the second photo). Scroll down to see a number of chrysoprase pieces that would compliment these earrings. This apple-green color is fabulous for women who look best in warm hues.

    This Art Deco marcasite brooch has three faceted chrysoprase (glass?) stones set in sterling silver. It 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 jewel 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.
