Vintage Earrings, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryDainty 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!

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.

Vintage Bracelets, 1930s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThe 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. Scroll down to see complementary blue Art Deco pieces.$ 395
