    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.

    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.

    Onyx & Enamel German Necklace

    The elaborate design and construction of this necklace make me think it’s German or Czech in origin. The centerpiece has 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. A classic color combination and design!  Scroll down to see earrings and bracelets that coordinate well with this jewel.
