Golden Topaz & Sterling Art Deco Bangle with Buckle
2 3/8" x 1 7/8" oval; 7" internal circumference; 3/16" wide
Though unsigned by the maker, this remarkable bangle has the same engraving, clasp and pierced back of the Diamonbar bangles 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.

Vintage Necklaces, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThe design and construction of this tiered necklace, a variation on the 1920s chicklet-style, is first class. Golden yellow, square-cut glass stones alternate with oblong crystals to form the necklace and tiered centerpiece. Round dangling citrine-glass stones add the movement that was so essential in the Art Deco era. All of the stones are faceted and mounted in decorated, silver-tone metal. The construction makes me think this piece was made in Europe. This divine jewel, which I initially purchased for myself, closes with a spring-ring clasp.

Vintage Earrings, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThese 1920s drop earrings are fun and unusual but hard to describe. The pendant is a ball composed of a faceted, golden-topaz-glass disk sandwiched between two shiny, silver-tone domes. A golden-topaz glass stone 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. Scroll down to see a bracelet and necklace to wear with these jewels.$ 245
