Onyx, Emerald & Diamanté Dangle Earrings
2 1/8" (including wire) x 5/8"
These diamanté dangle earrings are inset with emerald enamel accents and have additional sparkling stones at the earlobes. Onyx-glass hoops form the bottom of these lovely and versatile pendants. 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!

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

Vintage Bracelets, 1930s Jewelry, Wachenheimer Bros. JewelryThis Wachenheimer Bros bracelet has faceted, square-cut onyx-glass stones channel-set in sterling silver, with engraved edges and diamanté-studded clasps. This jewel 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 – bracelets like these were commonly worn in multiples.
