Citrine Briolette 1920s Earrings
2 1/2" x 1/2"
These 1920s earrings feature faceted, citrine-glass briolettes hanging from silver-tone chains. A small citrine bead accents each chain, and a citrine stone sits at the earlobe. These earrings are probably Czech in origin, are in all-original condition, and can be modified for pierced ears. The length makes this pair especially elegant. You can wear them with several Art Deco citrine necklaces and bracelets – scroll down to see a selection. A lovely color for a woman who looks best in warm hues.
Vintage Necklaces, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThis variation of an Art Deco chicklet necklace is fashioned from deep-citrine-glass stones and crystals in the shape of parallelograms. The stones are set in unmarked silver-tone frames. Some of the crystals have tiny corner chips, but they are not visible when the necklace is worn. The combination of colors and the shape of the stones make this jewel unique and versatile. Scroll down to see Art Deco pieces that coordinate well with this shade of citrine and with crystal.$ 225
Vintage Bracelets, 1920s Jewelry, Leach & Miller JewelryThis citrine bangle bracelet features sets of five faceted, round deep-citrine (or golden-topaz) glass stones alternating with five faceted diamanté. The stones are channel-set in narrow, curved sterling silver with engraved edges. The ends meet with a pair of diamanté-set scrolls rather than a clasp. Longer than the typical bracelet of this era, this Leach & Miller creation may have been designed to be worn on the upper arm, as a so-called slave bracelet. You can wear it now either way – simply pull apart the ends to put it on. This unusual jewel is perfect for a woman who looks best in warm colors.

Vintage Bracelets, 1920s Jewelry, R.F. Simmons JewelryThis vintage Art Deco bracelet by Simmons, a company known for their innovation, has rectangular dark-citrine-glass stones set in the center of alternating panels of sterling silver filigree. The clasp on this piece is unique and secure. This bracelet is wider than most of its filigree counterparts, which makes me think it may be an early 1930s piece.

Vintage Bracelets, 1930s Jewelry, Wells JewelryThis 1930s Wells sterling bracelet features a centerpiece of four faceted, cushion-cut citrine-glass stones set in silver frames. Four filigree panels are linked to each side of the center, which is finished with an outline of the stones. The detail on the front and back of this bracelet is extraordinary. The links that hold the panels together give it a bit of a Machine Age-feel and enhance the articulation of the piece. This well-made bracelet closes with a concealed clasp. A truly stunning and unusual piece! Scroll down to see Art Deco necklaces and earrings in similar shades of citrine that look great with this jewel.$ 295
Vintage Necklaces, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThe design and construction of this tiered necklace, a variation on the 1920s chicklet-style, is first class. Golden yellow, square-cut glass stones alternate with oblong crystals to form the necklace and tiered centerpiece. Round dangling citrine-glass stones add the movement that was so essential in the Art Deco era. All of the stones are faceted and mounted in decorated, silver-tone metal. The construction makes me think this piece was made in Europe. This divine jewel, which I initially purchased for myself, closes with a spring-ring clasp.
