This emerald bracelet features molded sugar-loaf glass stones framed in silver-tone metal that alternate with onyx glass circles. Decorative metal links and an older-style spring-ring clasp complete this classic Art Deco piece. The color combination and detail in the workmanship are divine. The clasp is marked sterling, but the entire bracelet probably isn’t. Bracelets of this type were advertised extensively in wholesaler catalogs in the 1920s to early-1930s.

    This lapis bracelet features sugar-loaf stones (3/8" high) set in sterling silver that alternate with square glass links in a darker blue. The links and settings are sterling silver. This type of bracelet was called a slave bracelet when it was made in the late 1920s and 1930s. This piece, which closes with a spring-ring clasp, is from my personal collection. I’m reluctantly offering it for purchase. Scroll down to see some lapis Art Deco pieces that look lovely with this jewel.

    Onyx, Emerald & Diamanté Dangling Earrings

    , ,
    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!

    These emerald bead earrings from the early-1930s are Czech in origin. An emerald-glass stone in a silver-tone setting sits at the earlobe. The chain that connects the top and the faceted, round glass ball pendant has a lantern-shaped bead in the middle. The color of the crystal beads is a pale shade of emerald green (without a bluish tint). These all-original screw-back earrings can be modified for pierced ears. Earrings like these never go out of style! An elegant accessory for day or evening wear. Scroll down to see an Art Deco bracelet to complete your ensemble.
