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.

    Seven faceted, oval onyx-glass stones prong-set and mounted on oval frames form this lovely Art Deco bracelet. The stones are 1/4" high and have points in the center. The setting is sterling silver with a spring-ring clasp. This well-made piece, which is longer than most of its era, is signed. However, I can't determine the maker's name.

    Onyx, Diamanté & Sterling 3-Row Bracelet by Wachenheimer Bros.

    , ,
    This three-row, sterling silver line bracelet by Wachenheimer Brothers has a row of faceted, round onyx-glass stones on either side of a center row of diamanté. The bejeweled fold-over clasp, which joins the harp-shaped link at each end, was used by this maker in the early 1930s, when they were no longer using their Diamonbar trademark. 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. Scroll down to see a great selection of Art Deco pieces to wear with this lovely bracelet.
