Crystal Chicklet-Style Art Deco Earrings
2" x 1/2"
"STERLING" on screw back
These stunning 1920s Art Deco earrings combine square-cut and round chicklet-style crystals in graduating sizes. They sparkle beautifully while they swing! The screw-backs are marked sterling, but I cannot say whether the metal that frames each stone is as well. These all-original screw-back earrings are beautifully made, nonetheless. Please note that these earrings can be modified for pierced ears. Scroll down to see several Art Deco pieces to wear with these earrings.

The stones are set in unmarked silver-tone frames. Some of the crystals have tiny corner chips, but they are not visible when the necklace is worn. The combination of colors and the shape of the stones make this jewel unique and versatile.

- Vintage Bracelets, 1920s Jewelry, H. Payton JewelryThis 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).

- ArchivesFaceted, long amethyst glass stones are separated by trios of faceted crystals collet-set in decorative mounts in this classic 1920s Art Deco necklace. The stones are all open-back to allow for the maximum reflection of light. The settings for the three crystals closest to the spring-ring clasp have plain edges – they were added to lengthen the original 14.5 inch necklace. This necklace may be sterling, but it is unmarked (except for the clasp). This gorgeous piece was part of my personal collection.

- Vintage Brooches & Pins, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThis Art Deco bar brooch is formed from faceted, rectangular onyx-glass and crystal stones. 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 tell me this brooch is European in origin. I think the setting is sterling silver, but the mark is unreadable.

- ArchivesThis crystal and sterling silver necklace is a 1950s revival of the Art Deco chicklet. These faceted, square-cut crystals are set in angled frames, adding to the sparkle and uniqueness of this piece. This necklace closes with a concealed clasp; its style tells me this piece was produced in Japan in the early 1950s. After the war, Japan produced a lot of high-quality costume jewelry for export. This beautiful necklace sparkled on the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019.
