Ruby & Sterling Art Deco Bangle
2 1/4" x 2" oval; 6 3/4" internal circumference; 1/4" wide
Here is another classic Art Deco line bracelet in the form of a bangle: square-cut deep ruby-glass stones channel-set in sterling silver with engraved edges and a safety chain. This rare bangle has great color and is wider than many. (Note: Red glass stones of this period are more rare than other colors because gold was used to make red.) I have several other ruby Art Deco pieces that coordinate well with this bangle — scroll down to see a selection.
- Vintage Brooches & Pins, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThis pinwheel brooch has ruby-glass beads wired in a spiral and adorned with channels of diamanté. A large ruby-glass bead sits on top. Frank Hess designed a nearly identical dress clip for Miriam Haskell circa 1940, but his had diamanté only on the front. This brooch has them on both sides and closes with a trombone clasp on a filigree back. Real or faux diamond ear studs are the perfect accompaniment for this charming French jewel.USD$275.00
- Vintage Necklaces, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThis ruby red and crystal necklace has single and clusters of blown-ruby-glass beads separated by crystal disks. Made in the 1920s-1930s, this lovely and versatile piece closes with a filigree fish-hook clasp. At 18 inches, this necklace is longer than most of its contemporaries.USD$275.00
- ArchivesThis vintage multi strand necklace is a variation of the chicklet-style so popular in the 1920s-1930s. Three rows of faceted, ruby-glass chicklets drape in the front, with two larger faceted ruby-glass triangles joining the three rows to the rest of the piece. The chicklets are open-back; the triangles are not. This unusual version of the classic chicklet in hard-to-find red closes with a spring-ring clasp. This necklace is probably Czech in origin. What a great piece for a round or scooped neckline!USD$245.00
