    Crystal Bead & Sterling 1920s Drop Earrings

    , ,
    Dainty and elegant, these 1920s earrings feature a faceted crystal ball dangling from a fine sterling silver chain. The framed glass stone that fronts the screw back appears to have darkened only because the attachment of the mechanism doesn't allow light to pass through it. The screw backs can be modified for pierced ears. These earrings go with absolutely everything and can be worn with all color palettes! Scroll down to see a selection of necklaces and brooches to wear with this lovely pair.

    Lapis Bead Czech 1930s Drop Earrings

    , ,
    A pair of lapis glass beads, each capped with flower-petal-shaped metal, form these Art Deco drop earrings from the former Czechoslovakia. The lower bead is 1/2-inch in diameter. The size and color make these earrings a bit bolder in effect than pieces from the 1920s. The original screw-backs were replaced with sterling silver posts for pierced ears by my expert jeweler.

    Lapis & Sterling 1920s Bracelet

    , ,
    This lapis bracelet features sugar-loaf stones (3/8" high) set in sterling silver that alternate with square glass links in a darker blue. The links and settings are sterling silver. This type of bracelet was called a slave bracelet when it was made in the late 1920s and 1930s. This piece, which closes with a spring-ring clasp, is from my personal collection. I’m reluctantly offering it for purchase. Scroll down to see some lapis Art Deco pieces that look lovely with this jewel.

    Lapis, Marcasite & Sterling German Bracelet

    , ,
    The lapis (glass?) stones set in sterling silver with marcasite links are an interesting shape and color. The stones may look more like sodalite than lapis lazuli, because they don't have the brassy specks usually found in the latter. Whatever the case, the color is fabulous, and the workmanship is typical of the high-quality pieces produced in Germany before World War II. This lovely jewel closes with a concealed clasp with a safety catch.
