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.
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.
This quintessential Art Deco line bracelet, by the renowned Wachenheimer Brothers (makers of Diamonbar pieces) has faceted square-cut onyx-glass stones set in sterling silver, with engraved edges and diamanté-studded clasps. This bracelet was made in two sections, with identical fold-over clasps in both places. Because of the type of clasp used, I know that this piece was made in the early 1930s, after the company stopped using their Diamonbar trademark and near the end of the their production. The last photo shows this bracelet along with two other line bracelets – scroll down to see their details as well as other onyx Art Deco pieces to wear with this lovely bracelet.
Seven faceted oval onyx glass stones are set in sterling silver with sterling links in this lovely Art Deco bracelet. The stones are 1/4" high and have points in the center. The faceting and cut of the onyx glass gives this bracelet, which closes with a spring-ring clasp, an attractive shine. This piece, which is longer than most of its era, is possibly by George Fuller & Sons (based on the mark). I have several onyx Art Deco pieces that compliment this bracelet – scroll down to see them.
