    Diamanté & Sterling Art Deco Line Bracelet by Otis

    , ,

    This excellent example of an Art Deco line bracelet, the forerunner of today’s tennis bracelet, features square-cut diamanté channel set in rhodium-plated sterling silver with engraved edges and a diamanté-encrusted fold-over clasp. The excellent articulation speaks to the high-quality construction of the piece. Line bracelets (known as flexible bracelets in that era) were all the rage in the 1920s-1930s and were typically worn in multiples. You can see this bracelet paired with other line bracelets in the detailed images.

    Diamanté & Sterling Art Deco Line Bracelet by Dorsons

    This diamanté and sterling silver Art Deco line 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 baguettes. This well-made bracelet with excellent articulation has a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp. Pieces with all clear rhinestones 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.

    Diamanté & Sterling Silver Buckle Bracelet by Otis

    , ,

    This silver buckle bracelet features two rows of round diamanté set in sterling. The concealed clasp has a flat, rectangular tongue with a floral-decorated release button in the center; the straight safety-clasp swivels. This style of clasp was used by Wachenheimer Brothers (“WB”) late in their production. The back is stamped “3 20 17”, the date the patent was issued to them for the way the links are connected. However, even though this bracelet has these WB characteristics, it doesn’t have the Diamonbar mark. The components or the entire piece may have been made by WB, but I believe this bracelet was sold by Otis, the company that purchased the equipment and inventory from WB after they went out of business.
