Rectangular, faceted onyx-glass and crystal stones with faceted onyx-glass triangles on the ends form this cut-out Art Deco bar brooch. The pattern creates a checkered effect. The stones are all open-back, and the workmanship is superb. This piece closes with a trombone clasp, which makes me think the brooch is European in origin. I think the setting is sterling silver, but the mark is unreadable.

    Crystal Art Deco Bangle by H. Payton

    , ,

    Bangle bracelets like this crystal one by H. Payton (Payco) were all the rage in the 1920s and 1930s. The bracelets were available in many colors of glass to imitate gemstones. With open-back faceted, square-cut stones to let light pass through, this piece goes with everything, in terms of clothing, and also looks great with other bangles and/or line bracelets of the era. Women typically wore multiple bracelets back then, and I confess that I’ve adopted that practice as part of my own personal style. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist, so please note the inside circumference (6 3/4″) and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece. Scroll down to see other Art Deco crystal pieces to wear with this bracelet.

    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.

The all-original screw-backs (which can be modified for pierced ears) each have a diamond-shaped crystal chicklet at the earlobe. The mountings and findings may be sterling silver, but only the screw-backs are marked. Because the dangling chicklets are separated by rings, these earrings have lots of movement and light reflection. These earrings look great with many Art Deco pieces in my boutique – scroll down to see a selection.

    A faceted clear crystal ball hangs from a fine sterling silver chain in these dainty 1920s Art Deco earrings. The all-original screw-backs (which can be modified for pierced ears) have a framed glass stone at the earlobe. These stones appear to have darkened only because the attachment of the screw-back mechanisms does not allow the light to pass through the stones. These earrings go with everything! Scroll down to see a selection of necklaces and brooches to wear with this pair.

    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.
