This crystal bead necklace from the 1920s is long and unusual. Disks of alternating crystal and onyx separate the faceted, graduated beads. The units of disks are tapered at each end. You can wear this necklace long (37”) or double it with a necklace shortener or ribbon – the striped effect the pattern creates is stunning and eye-catching. I know, because I wore the necklace that way for many years to great acclaim! Scroll down to see some complimentary pieces to wear with this fabulous jewel.

    Crystal Bead Earrings with Onyx

    , ,
    These vintage crystal bead earrings are formed from a faceted, lantern-shaped bead that dangles from a row of crystal beads separated by onyx disks. At the top is a filigree plaque. The original screw-backs were replaced by sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. I like long earrings, so I had the lever-backs added above the filigree. If these earrings are a bit too long for you, a jeweler could remove the lever-backs and add a sterling post to the back of the filigree. These Art Deco earrings are from my personal collection.

    Onyx, Marcasite & Sterling German Bracelet

    , ,
    This 1930s marcasite and onyx bracelet from Germany features faceted, rectangular stones alternating with embellished sterling links. I have always found many German Art Deco pieces especially appealing because of their high-quality design and construction. Bracelets like this one are extremely versatile for both day and evening wear. This piece was one of the first German Art Deco jewels that joined my personal collection decades ago. I was thrilled when it was chosen to walk the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. Scroll down to see the 1950s ear clips the designer (unexpectedly, but brilliantly!) selected for the model to wear with this jewel. You'll also see two pairs of complementary Art Deco pendant earrings.

    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).

    These Alice Caviness earrings have clusters of black- and clear-glass bi-colored beads. Some have caps of silver-tone filigree, while other caps are solid metal. These ear clips were designed in the starburst or atomic motif that was popular in the 1950s, yet they are so versatile and wearable now! In fact, these earrings walked the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. The designer paired them – unexpectedly, yet perfectly – with a 1930s German Art Deco bracelet.
