    Onyx & Enamel German Necklace

    This 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.

    Onyx & Crystal 1920s Bar Brooch

    , ,
    Faceted, 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.

    Crystal Bead Earrings with Onyx

    , ,
    These vintage crystal bead earrings are formed from a faceted, lantern-shaped bead that dangles from a row of crystal beads separated by onyx disks. At the top is a filigree plaque. The original screw-backs were replaced by sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. I like long earrings, so I had the lever-backs added above the filigree. If these earrings are a bit too long for you, a jeweler could remove the lever-backs and add a sterling post to the back of the filigree. These Art Deco earrings are from my personal collection.

    Diamanté & Sterling Line Bracelet by Otis

    , ,
    This Otis sterling bracelet is a lovely example of an Art Deco line bracelet, the forerunner of today's tennis bracelet. It features faceted, square-cut diamanté channel-set in rhodium-plated sterling silver. Engraved edges and a diamanté-embellished fold-over clasp complete the design. The excellent articulation speaks to its high-quality construction, which actually was the same as that used by Wachenheimer Bros. (Read about the companies' connection.) Bracelets in this style (known as flexible bracelets in that era) were all the rage in the 1920s-1930s and were typically worn in multiples. You can see this one paired with other line bracelets in the photos. Although the stones have aged a bit, this jewel still has lots of sparkle. Scroll down to see coordinating pieces.

    Onyx, Emerald & Diamanté Dangling Earrings

    Onyx-glass hoops attached to emerald-green-enamel and diamanté-embellished panels of silver-tone metal form these lovely and versatile earrings. Additional diamanté adorn the earlobe. The ear wires for pierced ears are original, but the lever backs are unmarked. These earrings are probably European in origin. Though Art Deco in style, something about this pair makes me think they may be from a later Revival era. Nevertheless, they are beautiful!

    Onyx, Diamanté & Sterling Bracelet by Wachenheimer Bros.

    , ,
    This quintessential Art Deco line bracelet was made by the renowned Wachenheimer Brothers (best known for their Diamonbar pieces). It has faceted, square-cut onyx-glass stones channel-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. The type of clasp dates this piece to the early 1930s, after the company stopped using their Diamonbar trademark and near the end of their production. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist, so please note the bracelet length (6 7/8") and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece. The last photo shows it along with two other line bracelets – scroll down to see their details as well as other onyx Art Deco jewels to wear with this lovely bracelet.
