Diamanté Tank Track German Bracelet
6 7/8" x 1/2"
1930s or 1950s
This German bracelet features four rows of slightly curved, tapered links channel-set with diamanté. The rhodium-plated setting closes with a concealed clasp and safety catch. Although this piece is unsigned, the tank-track pattern and the bracelet’s construction remind me of pieces made by German companies in the 1930s. This bracelet may have been made in the early 1950s, when the German companies were re-establishing themselves after the war. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist. Please note its length (6 7/8″) and measure your wrist before purchasing this piece. Scroll down to see coordinating pieces.
Vintage Necklaces, 1950s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThis vintage bib necklace has a 3 ½”-wide centerpiece of tapered, curved links of channel-set diamanté and sprays of single stones. The setting is rhodium-plated white metal. An adjustable bar link chain with a spring-ring clasp completes the piece. This type of adjustable clasp – instead of the North American-style J-hook – was used by many German jewelry makers in the 1950s. The design and construction of this piece remind me of the work of Schreiber & Hiller, but this necklace is unmarked. Nonetheless, I think it was German-made. A perfect jewel for a woman who looks best in cool colors! Scroll down to see some coordinating bracelets.USD$295.00
Vintage Brooches & Pins, 1930s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThis black Bakelite brooch has a curved centerpiece topped with a collet-set diamanté. Each end features three rows of slightly-curved links with channel-set stones. The components are attached to a rhodium-plated metal back. This piece closes with a trombone clasp. The design and construction remind me of pieces created by German makers in the 1930s. Although the channel-set stones have aged a bit, this brooch is still a stunner!

Vintage Earrings, 1930s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThese fringe earrings are the most amazing I’ve ever seen! A full inch of fringe dangles beneath a frame formed by an array of rhodium-plated links with channel-set diamanté. (They are much brighter than the first photo indicates.) At the top is a single stone. Great articulation! The original ear clips were replaced by sterling silver posts for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. The design and construction of this pair remind of Machine Age-style pieces produced in Germany in the 1930s. A rare find for someone who wants to make a statement!
