    Sapphire Bead & Rondelle Pendant Earrings

    , ,
    These sapphire blue drop earrings are classy and long. Each has a blue rondelle (I had never seen a colored one before!) sandwiched between a pair of faceted, sapphire-glass beads. They are capped at each end with decorated silver-tone metal, and the pendants are suspended from silver-tone chain. A small diamanté is designed to adorn each earlobe. These all-original screw-back earrings can be modified for pierced ears. The backs of the screws are marked sterling, but I don’t know if the rest of the silver findings are as well. These lovely earrings can be worn anywhere, anytime and are perfect for those who like cool colors. Scroll down to see some sapphire earrings already converted for pierced ears as well as a lovely coordinating bracelet. This pair is a wonderful something blue for a bride!

    Sapphire, Diamanté & Sterling Filigree Bracelet by Granbery

    , ,
    This 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. Scroll down to see a selection of sapphire Art Deco necklaces and earrings to wear with this lovely piece.
