Lapis Panel 1930s Pendant Earrings
2" x 3/4" (panels are 3/4" square)
These lapis blue earrings are formed from molded-glass panels that look like carved gemstones. The flower motif in the blue-glass pendants is present in the silver-tone metal components that connect the pendant to the earring top. These all-original, unusual earrings have screw-backs, but they can be modified for pierced ears. Because these Art Deco earrings are 2″ long and bold (the glass panels are 3/4-inch squares), I would wear these drops with only an Art Deco bracelet – scroll down to see a selection. This versatile color is perfect for those who look best in cool hues.
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
Vintage Bracelets, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThis 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.

Vintage Bracelets, 1930s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThis chrome bracelet features a trio of curved, polished-chrome links that alternate with five rows of textured links. This piece, with a concealed clasp, is another example of Machine Age design that was inspired by radio or car grills. I think this wonderful and unusual bracelet is European in origin. It goes with everything, and it's perfect for a woman who looks best in cool colors!$ 195
