These Jakob Bengel earrings feature raised black Galalith triangles with red Galalith slots. The chrome settings envelope the stones. A stack of chrome disks completes the design. I purchased these earrings from a Bengel expert in the UK. They came with their unmarked ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears, so I am unaware of the metal content. If you require sterling silver, a competent jeweler could switch the ear wires. Scroll down to see Jakob Bengel pieces that work beautifully with these earrings.

    Black & Red Galalith & Chrome 1930s Necklace

    This Machine Age necklace has as its centerpiece a row of three arrow-shaped, black Galalith plaques covered with chrome triangle panels. A fourth plaque drops from the trio. Red Galalith cylindrical beads accent the chrome chain links.  This piece reminds me of the work of Jakob Bengel. I had four links removed from this necklace because I bought it for myself, but I saved the pieces for the future owner. Scroll down to see the perfect Bengel earrings to wear with this necklace.

    Red & Black Enamel Necklace by Jakob Bengel

    This red and black enamel necklace is unsigned. Even so, it has been well-documented as a Mauerwerk (brickwork) piece by Jakob Bengel. It features enamel on chrome, with an attractive link chain and a spring-ring clasp. This Machine Age necklace is extremely flexible and can be worn on either side. This piece is from my personal collection.
