"Czechoslovakia" on jump ring opposite clasp

Oblong dark-blue opaque-glass stones are set in a step-pattern in this Czech Art Deco necklace from my personal collection. What raises this piece above the rest (aside from the unusual color) are the silver metal strips that look like fringe on the three center panels. This well-made and fun necklace closes with a spring-ring clasp. Although I’ve called the stones lapis, they do not have the gold flecks one would expect in that stone. In this case I chose the name for its color alone. Scroll down to see two coordinating bracelets.

    Lapis, Marcasite & Sterling German Art Deco Bracelet

    , ,

    The blue (glass?) stones in this 1930s marcasite and sterling Art Deco bracelet actually look more like sodalite than lapis lazuli, because they don’t have the brassy specs 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 the World War II. This lovely bracelet closes with a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp with a safety hook. This shade of blue coordinates really well with several of my Art Deco pieces – scroll down to see them.

    Sterling Scarab Art Deco Bracelet by W.E. Richards

    , , ,

    This vintage scarab bracelet has sterling silver links and mounts with molded-glass tiger’s eye, chrysoprase, carnelian, lapis and variegated agates. This piece is a celebration of this quintessential Art Deco motif. By the well-known maker W.E. Richards, this bracelet closes with a spring-ring clasp. The multi-colored agates are unusual, and the variety of colors and classic design make this piece extremely versatile. You could emphasize one of the colors by wearing earrings or a necklace that matches one of the stones. Scroll down to see some suggestions. This bracelet was made in the Art Deco era or in the 1950s, when scarab bracelets were again all the rage.
