    Amethyst & Crystal Bead Long 1920s Necklace

    , ,
    This 1920s necklace of alternating amethyst-glass and crystal beads was designed to complement the long-waisted, slim flapper silhouette but is equally fashionable today. This substantial piece has just been professionally restrung with knots and no clasp. Although the necklace was designed to be worn as a single long (35″) strand, you can wear it doubled if you have a slim neck. A pearl extender clasp (see the seventh photo), which makes the doubling possible, will be included with this necklace. This jewel looks great with the Amethyst Bead Long Art Deco Necklace, also weighty, shown in the last photo. Scroll down to see it and a selection of coordinating bracelets and earrings.

    Diamanté & Sterling Bracelet by Dorsons

    , ,
    This diamanté and sterling silver 1940s bracelet by Dorsons takes the line-bracelet design one step further. Square-cut diamanté channel-set in rhodium-plated sterling silver are enhanced with two squares of clear baguettes. This well-made bracelet with excellent articulation has a concealed clasp. All-diamanté pieces are really hard to photograph, and this one is no exception. All stones are clear and bright, and the overall effect is much brighter than my photos indicate. In fact, this lovely bracelet sparkled on the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019! The model wore it with Art Deco crystal bead pendant earrings.

    Faceted, rectangular onyx-glass and crystal stones form the body of this Art Deco bar brooch. Each end has a faceted, onyx-glass triangle. The silver-tone metal setting has cut-outs, creating a checkered pattern with the stones. They are all open-back, and the workmanship is superb. The trombone clasp and unusual design make me think this brooch is European in origin. I also think the setting is sterling silver, but the mark is unreadable.

    Crystal Bangle Bracelet by H. Payton

    , ,
    This crystal bangle bracelet by H. Payton is a style that was all the rage in the 1920s. The company is best known by their PAYCO mark. Bracelets like this one were available in many colors of glass to imitate gemstones. With open-back faceted, square-cut stones to let light pass through, this piece goes with everything. It also looks great with other bangles and/or line bracelets of the era. Women typically wore multiple bracelets back then, and I confess that I’ve adopted that practice as part of my own personal style. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist, so please note the inside circumference (6 3/4″) and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece. A few of the stones have tiny chips, and there's a space between the stone next to the hinge and the metal (shown in the last photo).
