Emerald-glass baguettes emanate from a pavé center in these classic 1950s ear clips by Hattie Carnegie. The setting is rhodium-plated. These elegant earrings coordinate beautifully with a brooch by the same maker in a similar design. Pieces like these never go out of style and always look gorgeous wherever they’re worn. I got to see them sparkle on a model who walked the runway at Toronto Fashion Week 2019. Scroll down to see the emerald Art Deco necklace and bracelet she wore with the earrings as well as other coordinating jewels.

    Emerald, Diamanté & Sterling Line Bracelet by Otis

    , ,

    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?

    Rays of emerald-glass baguettes emanating from a pavé center are joined by a circle of diamanté in this 1950s sunburst brooch by Hattie Carnegie. The setting is rhodium-plated with a roll-over safety clasp. The design is classic, and the color combination is lush! In fact, Hattie made a pair of ear clips with the same motif a few years later. Scroll down to see them and an Art Deco bracelet that looks great with this brooch.

    Emerald, Diamanté & Sterling 1940s Fur Clip

    , ,

    This fur clip is beautiful in design and construction. Faceted emerald-cut and round emerald-glass stones, in sharp contrast to the diamanté and rhodium-plated sterling silver setting. This color combination is rich and versatile You can wear this piece on the shoulder or lapel of a jacket, on the shoulder of a dress or sweater, or on a hat or a scarf. Although this piece is marked, I cannot identify the maker. The design and use of sterling make me think it’s from the 1940s. But I don’t think these details matter – this clip is stunning!

    Emerald Art Deco Choker Necklace

    , ,

    This Art Deco choker necklace is a variation of the chicklet style. Instead of sitting on top of silver-tone metal mounts, these square-cut emerald-glass stones are actually framed. The links are slightly graduated in size, ending with a decorative, concealed clasp. This jewel looked fabulous on a runway model at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. This necklace was made for a slim neck, so please note the necklace length (14 1/2″) and check your neck size before purchasing this piece. Scroll down to take a look at other emerald jewels to wear with this one. Can you guess which earrings and bracelet the runway model wore with this necklace?
