This stunning Art Deco chicklet-style necklace by Hamilton & Hamilton has alternating faceted oblong-emerald-glass stones and faceted square-cut crystals, all mounted in sterling silver frames and ending in a drop. The emerald stones are a rich contrast to the crystals. This necklace has a matching bracelet that is barely 6 1/2″ long. You could add two emerald stones and one crystal to each end of the necklace, which would make it 20 inches long, plus the drop. This piece is a rare beauty!

- ArchivesThese 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.USD$225.00
- ArchivesThese 1920s earrings feature a large, faceted, round crystal bead dangling from a filigree caps. Above each pendant is a small, faceted, round bead set between the halves of a pointed-top bicone bead. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings walked the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019.

- ArchivesThis vintage line bracelet by Otis features faceted, square-cut emerald-glass stones channel-set in rhodium-plated sterling silver. The piece is finished with engraved edges and a diamanté-encrusted fold-over clasp. The color of the emeralds is rich and lush. The superb articulation speaks to the high-quality construction of the piece, which was the same as that of Wachenheimer Brothers. (Read about their connection with Otis.) Line bracelets were all the rage in the 1920s-1930s and were typically worn in multiples. You could wear this one with another line bracelet by the same maker or with a filigree bracelet with emeralds, as shown in the last images. I was delighted to see this jewel worn by a model on the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019! She was also adorned with a necklace and earrings, which are among the coordinating pieces shown below. Can you pick out the other runway jewels?USD$275.00
