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 glass 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.
The blue (glass?) stones in this 1930s marcasite and sterling Art Deco bracelet actually look more like sodalitethan 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 silver links and mounts with scarabs of molded-glass tiger's eye, chrysoprase, carnelian, lapis and variegated agates celebrate this quintessential Art Deco motif. This bracelet by the well-known maker W.E. Richards 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.
