"OTIS STERLING"

This 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?

    This Otis sterling bracelet is a lovely example of an Art Deco line bracelet, the forerunner of today's tennis bracelet. It features faceted, square-cut diamanté channel-set in rhodium-plated sterling silver. Engraved edges and a diamanté-embellished fold-over clasp complete the design. The excellent articulation speaks to its high-quality construction, 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 jewel still has lots of sparkle. Scroll down to see coordinating pieces.

    Onyx-glass hoops attached to emerald-green-enamel and diamanté-embellished panels of silver-tone metal form these lovely and versatile earrings. Additional diamanté adorn the earlobe. The ear wires for pierced ears are original, but the lever backs are unmarked. These earrings are probably European in origin. Though Art Deco in style, something about this pair makes me think they may be from a later Revival era. Nevertheless, they are beautiful!
