Sapphire & Crystal 1920s Pendant Earrings
2 1/2" x 1/2"
"STERLING" on screw-backs
These unusual Art Deco pendant earrings feature a large, faceted, bi-color crystal bead. Its top is clear, and the bottom is a deep-sapphire-blue. A small crystal bead is at the center of the silver-tone links, and a silver-tone filigree knot is at the earlobe. These all-original, long (2 1/2″) earrings are dainty, yet full of life. The screw-backs can be modified for pierced ears. The screws are marked sterling, but I don’t know if the rest of the findings are.

Vintage Bracelets, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThis vintage bangle bracelet is one of the first pieces I bought for myself when I started collecting only Art Deco jewels. It features three square sapphire glass stones alternating with three diamanté, all channel-set in sterling silver. This bracelet closes with a concealed clasp and safety chain. This narrow bracelet can be worn on its own or paired with others from the era. This piece is as versatile as they come and as chic today as it was when it was made in the 1920s.

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.
