"WACHENHEIMER STERLING"

This sterling silver link bracelet with lapis (glass?) panels is an example of the type of jewelry the Wachenheimer Brothers made circa 1929. These pieces, which did not bear the Diamonbar trademark, were advertised in Vogue as Wachenheimer Real Stone Jewelry, with phrases such as “Pride of Possession”, “Unforgettable” and “Inspired by the Mode”. This bracelet has a hidden, tongue-in-groove clasp and was made for a slim wrist. Please measure your wrist before purchasing this piece.  You could wear it with any of my Art Deco lapis necklaces and earrings – scroll down to see a selection.

    Lapis Panel 1930s Pendant Earrings

    , ,
    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.

    Lapis Bead Necklace with Chrome

    , ,
    This lapis bead necklace in a 1930s German Machine Age design was probably made by Jakob Bengel. It has glass beads separated by decorative chrome links and a center Galalith(?) bead with chrome end caps. The same piece in other colors has been attributed to Bengel by a British expert. (This maker’s jewelry was never signed.) This necklace closes with a spring-ring clasp, which may be a replacement (it is brass in color). The center bead has a minor flaw that probably occurred during manufacture. This small imperfection does not detract from the beauty or wearability of this jewel.

    This lapis and silver pyramid necklace has molded sugar-loaf glass stones set in silver-tone frames alternating with silver-tone triangular plaques. This motif illustrates the world's fascination with all things Egyptian in the 1920s. This necklace, which closes with a spring-ring clasp, was in my personal collection.

    Lapis Bead Czech Drop Earrings

    , ,
    These lapis drop earrings have a pair of glass beads, each capped with flower-petal-shaped metal. The lower bead is 1/2-inch in diameter. The size and color make these pendants a bit bolder in effect than Art Deco pieces from the 1920s. The original screw-backs were replaced with sterling silver posts for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. Scroll down to see a selection of Art Deco jewels to wear with these earrings. Perfect for those who look best in cool colors.
