This costume brooch by Jakob Bengel is a Machine Age design in red & black Galalith on chrome. The colored semi-circles on chrome are joined with chrome tubes. A wonderful accessory for a coat, dress, or jacket – very distinctive, very wearable, and very modern! I bought this brooch for my personal collection from a Bengel expert in the UK.

- ArchivesThese Jakob Bengel earrings feature raised black Galalith triangles with red Galalith slots. The chrome settings envelope the stones. A stack of chrome disks completes the design. I purchased these earrings from a Bengel expert in the UK. They came with their unmarked ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears, so I am unaware of the metal content. If you require sterling silver, a competent jeweler could switch the ear wires. Scroll down to see Jakob Bengel pieces that work beautifully with these earrings.USD$295.00
