    Chrysoprase & Crystal Art Deco Earrings

    , ,

    Two faceted oblong chrysoprase (glass?) stones with a faceted round collet-set crystal at the bottom form these classic 1920s Art Deco earrings. Each stone is separated by a ring link, so there’s plenty of movement here. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. I have a number of chrysoprase pieces that would compliment these earrings – scroll down to see them.

    Onyx, Marcasite & Sterling Art Deco Earrings by Wachenheimer Bros.

    , ,

    These onyx, marcasite and sterling silver Art Deco pendant earrings are part of a line the maker called Wachenheimer Real Stone Jewelry. They feature a faceted, onyx (or glass?) stone set with a top border of marcasites and suspended from a marcasite-encrusted sterling slim bar. A square-cut, prong-set onyx stone sits at the earlobe. These all-original screw-back earrings can be modified for pierced ears. By the late 1920s, the company had moved away from their Diamonbar sterling and crystal flexible bracelets and bangles to this line, but the maker’s high-quality is still present in these lovely earrings. Scroll down to see a selection of onyx Art Deco pieces to wear with these versatile earrings.

    Onyx, Diamanté & Sterling Art Deco Line Bracelet by Wachenheimer Bros.

    , ,

    This quintessential Art Deco line bracelet, by the renowned Wachenheimer Brothers (makers of Diamonbar pieces) has faceted square-cut onyx-glass stones set in sterling silver, with engraved edges and diamanté-studded clasps. This bracelet was made in two sections, with identical fold-over clasps in both places. Because of the type of clasp used, I know that this piece was made in the early 1930s, after the company stopped using their Diamonbar trademark and near the end of the their production. The last photo shows this bracelet along with two other line bracelets – scroll down to see their details as well as other onyx Art Deco pieces to wear with this lovely bracelet.

    Onyx & Sterling Art Deco Bracelet

    , ,

    Seven faceted oval onyx glass stones are set in sterling silver with sterling links in this lovely Art Deco bracelet. The stones are 1/4″ high and have points in the center. The faceting and cut of the onyx glass gives this bracelet, which closes with a spring-ring clasp, an attractive shine. This piece, which is longer than most of its era, is possibly by George Fuller & Sons (based on the mark). Several onyx Art Deco pieces that compliment this bracelet are available – scroll down to see them.
