Lapis & Celluloid Bead French Art Deco Necklace

Lapis & Celluloid Bead French Art Deco Necklace


Additional information




16" x 1 3/4" (at center)






"MADE IN FRANCE" on clasp

This French Art Deco necklace is substantial. It has tear-drop-shaped lapis-glass beads that alternate with molded dark-blue celluloid(?) beads and decorative brass spacers. The beads and spacers are strung on chain, which has stretched a bit. This stunning and unusual necklace closes with a bee-hive-shaped, screw-in clasp, so typical on French pieces. This necklace was part of my personal collection. The colors and construction are amazing! A perfect adornment for a woman who looks best in cool colors.

    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.
