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.

Vintage Necklaces, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThis vintage black onyx necklace has a centerpiece with three oval, onyx-glass plaques molded in a flower-and-leaf design and set on silver-tone frames. They alternate with black-and-white-enameled links with the same motif. A scroll chain with a spring-ring clasp completes this piece. The elaborate design and construction of this necklace make me think it’s German or Czech in origin. A classic color combination and design!

Vintage Brooches & Pins, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryFaceted, rectangular onyx-glass and crystal stones form the body of this Art Deco bar brooch. Each end has a faceted, onyx-glass triangle. The silver-tone metal setting has cut-outs, creating a checkered pattern with the stones. They are all open-back, and the workmanship is superb. The trombone clasp and unusual design make me think this brooch is European in origin. I also think the setting is sterling silver, but the mark is unreadable.
