    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?

    Emerald & Onyx 1920s Bracelet

    , ,
    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. Scroll down to see a similar bracelet in lapis as well as several emerald Art Deco jewels to wear with this one.
