Molded lapis-blue-glass panels that look like carved gemstones form these unusual Art Deco pendant earrings. The flower motif in the blue glass is present in the silver-tone metal components that connect the pendant to the earring top. These all-original earrings have screw-backs, but they can be modified for pierced ears. Because these earrings are 2″ long and bold (the glass panels are 3/4-inch squares), I would wear these drops with only an Art Deco lapis bracelet – scroll down to see a selection.

    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 bracelet.

    Scarab Bracelet in Sterling by W.E. Richards

    , ,

    This vintage scarab bracelet has sterling silver links and mounts with molded-glass stones. The colors are tiger’s eye, chrysoprase, carnelian, lapis lazuli, and variegated agates. This piece is a celebration of a quintessential Art Deco motif. By the well-known maker W.E. Richards, this jewel closes with a spring-ring clasp. The multi-colored agates are unusual, and the variety of colors and classic design make this bracelet 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 1920s or in the 1950s, during an Art Deco Revival when scarab bracelets were again all the rage.

    Lapis, Marcasite & Sterling German 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.
