Trios of ruby glass stones add contrast to this Art Deco diamanté-encrusted brooch that can also be worn as separate dress clips. The photos show a third option for wearing this piece: one clip worn as a pendant on a black rubber cord; you may prefer to use a silver or white-gold chain. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless steel twist lock (which is shown in the photo) is included with this purchase. The brooch mechanism, which is German, closes with a simple c-clasp.

    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. Some of 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. Read more about the connection between these companies. Scroll down to see a selection of lovely coordinating pieces.

    Diamanté & Sterling Art Deco Line Bracelet by Otis

    , ,

    This lovely example of an Art Deco line bracelet, the forerunner of today’s tennis bracelet, features faceted, square-cut diamanté channel-set in rhodium-plated sterling silver.  Engraved edges and a diamanté-encrusted fold-over clasp complete the piece. The excellent articulation speaks to the high-quality construction of this bracelet, which actually was the same as that used by Wachenheimer Bros. (Read about the companies’ connection.) Bracelets in this style (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 one paired with other line bracelets in the photos. Although the stones have aged a bit, this piece still has lots of sparkle. Scroll down to see coordinating pieces.

    Diamanté & Sterling 1940s Bracelet by Dorsons

    , ,

    This diamanté and sterling silver 1940s 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 clear baguettes. This well-made bracelet with excellent articulation has a concealed clasp. Pieces with all diamanté 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 indicate.
