These classy citrine dangle earrings are fashioned from faceted glass stones shaped like gumdrops. They are suspended from citrine-glass beads and a matching stone set in silver-tone metal. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. If you don’t have pierced ears and are looking for similar earrings with screw backs, scroll down to see what is available. Included are necklaces and bracelets that complement these earrings, an essential jewelry wardrobe staple for those who look best in warm colors.

    Citrine, Diamanté & Sterling Bangle by Leach & Miller

    , ,
    This 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.

    Citrine Pendant Earrings

    , ,
    These citrine pendant earrings from the mid-1920s are probably Czech in origin. What’s really unique is the metal inlays in each glass drop, which give the appearance of marcasites. The faceted, domed crystal at the top (designed to fall at the earlobe) is the same color as the bead and drop. These all-original, Art Deco screw-back earrings are rich in color and can be modified for pierced ears. Scroll down to see a pair that has already been converted as well as coordinating pieces.

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.

    Citrine & Crystal 1920s Tiered Necklace

    , ,
    The 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.

    Citrine & Sterling Filigree Art Deco Bracelet by Simmons

    This 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.

    Citrine & Sterling Bracelet by Wells

    , ,
    This 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.
