This Art Deco necklace with onyx glass and crystal beads is incredibly versatile. It can be worn long or short, because the necklace separates into two. You can wear just the largest beads in a 19″ length or the small and narrow beads in a 15 1/4″ length. It’s like having three necklaces in one! Believe it or not, I found the necklace and the earrings separately. The original screw-backs on the earrings were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. This set, which was in my personal collection, is incredibly versatile and of the moment. Scroll down to see some coordinating bracelets.
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). I have several onyx Art Deco pieces that compliment this bracelet – scroll down to see them.
This three-row sterling silver line bracelet by Wachenheimer Brothers has two rows of onyx-glass stones flanking a single row of diamanté in the center. The bejeweled fold-over clasp, which joins a harp-shaped link at each end, was used by the makers in the early 1930s, when they were no longer using their Diamonbartrademark. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist. Please note the bracelet length (6 7/8") and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece.
