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.

    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.

    Emerald, Diamanté & Sterling 1920s Bracelet

    This vintage costume bracelet is exceptional! It features rectangular sterling silver links set with faceted, triangular-cut emerald-glass stones. Each link has a bead-set diamanté in each corner. The edges of the bracelet are engraved. This piece closes with a concealed clasp and safety catch. Given the outstanding quality and beautiful design of this Art Deco bracelet, I’m surprised that it has no maker’s mark. This jewel walked the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. The model wore it with a fabulous pair of 1950s emerald earrings. Scroll down to see them and other coordinating pieces. Which earrings would you choose to accompany this beautiful bracelet?

    Emerald & Onyx 1920s 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.
