Dainty and elegant, these 1920s earrings feature a faceted crystal ball dangling from a fine sterling silver chain. The framed glass stone that fronts the screw back appears to have darkened only because the attachment of the mechanism doesn’t allow light to pass through it. The screw backs can be modified for pierced ears. These earrings go with absolutely everything and can be worn with all color palettes! Scroll down to see a selection of necklaces and brooches to wear with this lovely pair.

    Blue Blown Glass Bead Necklace with Rings

    This vintage glass bead necklace has clusters of blown-glass beads in shades of blue wound together with wire and linked with clear glass rings. Although the spring-ring clasp doesn’t provide a clue to the necklace’s origin, I believe it was made in Europe. This piece was recently restrung by my expert jeweler. This wreath-like jewel from my personal collection is a lovely topping to a round-neck garment and the perfect colors for women who dress in a cool palette.

    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.

    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.
