Though unsigned by the maker, this remarkable bangle has the same engraving, clasp and pierced back of the Diamonbarbangles produced by Wachenheimer Brothers in the mid-1920s. This bangle features square-cut golden-topaz-glass stones channel-set in sterling silver and adorned with a diamanté buckle. The pierced back allows light to enhance this unusual color. This bracelet has a built-in safety clasp, which the company called a secret lock. This feature is illustrated on a page from a 1926 wholesaler’s catalog, which is shown in the last photo.

These fun 1920s Art Deco earrings are hard to describe. The bottom of the pendant has a faceted golden topaz (or deep citrine color) glass disk sandwiched between two silver-tone metal domes that give a sparkling effect. A golden-topaz glass stone set in silver-tone metal sits at the ear lobe, and a small bead is at the center of the paper-clip chain. These all-original, long earrings have screw-backs, which can be modified for pierced ears. Wear them with off-duty and business-casual attire. I have a gorgeous golden topaz and sterling Art Deco bracelet to wear with these earrings – scroll down to see it.
The design and construction of this citrine glass and crystal tiered Art Deco necklace, a variation on the chicklet style, is first class. Deep yellow/golden square-cut glass stones alternate with oblong crystals to form the necklace and tiered center piece. Round dangling citrine glass stones add the movement that was so essential in this era. All of the stones are faceted and mounted in decorated, silver-tone metal. This divine necklace, which I initially purchased for myself, closes with a spring-ring clasp. I have a number of Art Deco earrings and bracelets to wear with this necklace – scroll down to see them.
