Vintage Bracelets, 1930s Jewelry, WMF JewelryAn unusual example of vintage German jewelry, this silver link Machine Age bracelet was made by Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik (WMF). This German company is best known for its Art Nouveau and Art Deco silver-plated tableware. This silver-plated link bracelet from the Ikora line closes with a concealed clasp. The warm patina is the result of the oxidation process the jewelry department used in its manufacturing.

Vintage Earrings, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThese Art Deco pendant earrings are wonderfully unusual. Each features 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. Scroll down to see a selection of necklaces and bracelets to wear with these stylish jewels.$ 295
