This three-row sterling silver line bracelet by Wachenheimer Brothers has two rows of onyx-glass stones flanking a single row of diamanté in the center. The bejeweled fold-over clasp, which joins a harp-shaped link at each end, was used by the makers in the early 1930s, when they were no longer using their Diamonbartrademark. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist. Please note the bracelet length (6 7/8") and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece.

Rectangular, faceted onyx-glass and crystal stones with faceted onyx-glass triangles on the ends form this cut-out Art Deco bar brooch. The pattern creates a checkered effect. The stones are all open-back, and the workmanship is superb. This piece closes with a trombone clasp, which makes me think the brooch is European in origin. I think the setting is sterling silver, but the mark is unreadable. Scroll down to see Art Deco earrings and bracelets that coordinate beautifully with this brooch. Black-and-white never goes out of style!

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.

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.

This piece, which is longer than most of its era, is possibly by George Fuller & Sons (based on the mark). I have several onyx Art Deco pieces that compliment this bracelet – scroll down to see them.
