Molded sugar-loaf lapis glass stones set in silver-tone frames alternate with silver-tone triangular plaques in this 1920s Art Deco necklace. With its pyramid motif, this piece is a great example of the period’s fascination with all things Egyptian. This necklace, which closes with a spring-ring clasp, was in my personal collection.

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.
