Sapphire Chicklet-style Necklace
16" x 1 3/4" (at center); round stones: 3/8" in diameter; horizontal rectangles: 3/8" x 1/2"
"STERLING" on clasp
This stunning Art Deco jewel, with its faceted, deep-blue-sapphire-glass stones, is an unusual variation of that era’s chicklet necklace. This piece has round stones alternating with larger horizontally-set rectangular ones. At the center of the necklace the rectangular stones are vertically-set, to create a focal point. The faceting on these stones is unusual, and the rich-color is divine. The stones are set in and linked with silver-tone metal; only the clasp is marked sterling. This necklace, which closes with a spring-ring clasp, takes the chicklet–style to a whole new level! This jewel walked the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019.

Vintage Bracelets, 1920s Jewelry, Granbery JewelryThis sterling silver filigree bracelet by Granbery is a fine example of a style that was very popular in the 1920s. With its sapphire-glass baguettes and diamanté accents, this piece has the same construction and appearance as its fine jewelry counterpart. The excellent articulation and clasp with safety catch are the hallmarks of high-quality. Although one of the baguettes has a small surface chip, my expert jeweler has confirmed that the stone is firmly set. The bracelet looks perfect when worn. Granbery advertised their flexible bracelets in the June 1925 issue of The Keystone, a jewelry trade publication.

The design is timeless and versatile! These 1950s ear clips were one of the Hattie Carnegie creations chosen by the designer to walk the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. He paired them with an Art Deco necklace in a similar blue worn by a model in a black-and-white houndstooth evening gown. I confess that I was both surprised and delighted with this choice, and the audience was definitely pleased. Although that necklace is no longer available, scroll down to see a similar piece.$ 245
