    Diamanté Winged Art Deco Brooch or Pair of Dress Clips by Coro (Unsigned)

    This Art Deco Duette, embellished with round diamanté and baguettes, looks like a pair of wings. This piece can be worn as a brooch or separate dress clips. The rhodium-plated brooch mechanism closes with a roll-over safety clasp. This piece was made in Canada, where Coro had manufacturing operations and sales rooms from 1934 until about 1970.

    Onyx, Diamanté & Sterling Art Deco Line Bracelet by Wachenheimer Bros.

    , ,

    This quintessential Art Deco line bracelet, by the renowned Wachenheimer Brothers (makers of Diamonbar pieces) has faceted square-cut onyx-glass stones set in sterling silver, with engraved edges and diamanté-studded clasps. This bracelet was made in two sections, with identical fold-over clasps in both places. Because of the type of clasp used, I know that this piece was made in the early 1930s, after the company stopped using their Diamonbar trademark and near the end of the their production. The last photo shows this bracelet along with two other line bracelets – scroll down to see their details as well as other onyx Art Deco pieces to wear with this lovely bracelet.

    Diamanté Art Deco Double Clip Brooch by Mazer Bros.

    , ,

    This double clip brooch by Mazer Brothers features sparkly round and baguette diamanté in a late-Art Deco design. What’s interesting about this piece is that the patent for the brooch mechanism that connects the dress clips was issued to Marcel Boucher in 1939, two years after he started his own company. He filed the patent application when he was working for Mazer Brothers, but the patent wasn’t assigned to them when it was issued. (You can see the utility patent here, below Boucher’s name.) I was surprised to find the “MAZER” mark on this piece from the technical perspective but certainly not from an aesthetic point of view. Wear this lovely piece as a brooch or as separate dress clips. Scroll down to see several complementary bracelets.

    These vintage dangle earrings are diamanté-encrusted with faceted, square-cut stones at the earlobe and as the focal point in the drop. Long and luxurious, these all-original Art Deco pendants have gold-colored ear wires with shepherd hooks for pierced ears. I am unaware of their metal content. I think these beautiful earrings are European in origin. Though stamped “SILVER” on the earring backs, I don’t think the settings are sterling.

    This triangular-shaped pair of Art Deco dress clips is beautifully embellished with baguettes, round diamanté, and a center marquis-shaped stone, all set in rhodium-plated base metal. The cut-outs enhance the intricate design. In addition to wearing one or both clips as intended, you can also wear one as a pendant. The last photo  shows it on a black rubber cord; you may prefer to use a white gold or silver 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. Interestingly, the front of these clips is identical to a double-clip brooch (which is shown below), but the dress clip mechanisms are different. Although these clips are marked with a utility patent number, it is unreadable. Quite a mystery! Scroll down to see a selection of coordinating bracelets.
