A faceted clear crystal ball hangs from a fine sterling silver chain in these dainty 1920s Art Deco earrings. The all-original screw-backs (which can be modified for pierced ears) have a framed glass stone at the earlobe. These stones appear to have darkened only because the attachment of the screw-back mechanisms does not allow the light to pass through the stones. These earrings go with everything! Scroll down to see a selection of necklaces and brooches to wear with this pair.

    Rectangular, faceted onyx-glass and crystal stones with faceted onyx-glass triangles on the ends form this cut-out Art Deco bar brooch. The pattern creates a checkered effect. The stones are all open-back, and the workmanship is superb. This piece closes with a trombone clasp, which makes me think the brooch is European in origin. I think the setting is sterling silver, but the mark is unreadable.

    Faceted crystal beads uniform in size form this long 1930s Art Deco necklace that can be worn in different ways with just about anything. The quality of the beads is superb, and the design is timeless. The necklace has been recently re-strung by my professional jeweler (who actually sold it to me for my personal collection). Even though the necklace has no clasp, you can wear it three ways:  long, knotted, and doubled with a sterling silver pearl enhancer, which I will include with the necklace. Be sure to look at all of the photos, which illustrate these options. Scroll down to see several pairs of earrings to wear with this fabulous necklace.

    Amethyst & Crystal Bead Long Art Deco 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 piece looks great with the Amethyst Bead Long Art Deco Necklace, also weighty, shown in the last photo. Scroll down to see a selection of coordinating bracelets and earrings.
