Onyx-glass hoops attached to emerald-green-enamel and diamanté-embellished panels of silver-tone metal form these lovely and versatile Art Deco earrings. These all-original earrings with lever-backs for pierced ears have additional diamanté designed to adorn the earlobe. The lever-backs are unmarked, so I don’t know if they are sterling silver. These earrings are probably European in origin. Though Art Deco in style, something about these earrings make me think they may be from a later Revival era. Nevertheless, they are beautiful!

    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.

    Emerald & Onyx Art Deco Bracelet

    , ,

    This emerald bracelet features molded sugar-loaf glass stones framed in silver-tone metal that alternate with onyx glass circles. Decorative metal links and an older-style spring-ring clasp complete this classic Art Deco piece. The color combination and detail in the workmanship are divine. The clasp is marked sterling, but the entire bracelet probably isn’t. Bracelets of this type were advertised extensively in wholesaler catalogs in the 1920s to early-1930s.

    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.

    Emerald, Diamanté & Sterling Art Deco Line Bracelet by Otis

    , ,

    This vintage line bracelet by Otis features faceted, square-cut emerald-glass stones channel-set in rhodium-plated sterling silver. The piece is finished with engraved edges and a diamanté-encrusted fold-over clasp. The color of the emeralds is rich and lush. The superb articulation speaks to the high-quality construction of the piece, which was the same as that of Wachenheimer Brothers. (Read about their connection with Otis.) Line bracelets (known as flexible bracelets in that era) were all the rage in the 1920s-1930s and were typically worn in multiples. You could wear this one with another line bracelet by the same maker or with a filigree bracelet with emeralds, as shown in the last images.
