"DIAMONBAR STERLING"

This quintessential Art Deco line bracelet (called a flexible bracelet, in its day) with sapphire-glass squares channel-set in sterling silver is a typical example of the maker’s high-quality Diamonbar bracelets. The diamanté buckle is part of the clasp. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist, so please note the bracelet length (6 3/4″) and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece. I have the same piece with citrine-glass squares, although that bracelet is unsigned. You can wear this type of bracelet alone or in multiples. Scroll down to see some more beautiful sapphire Art Deco pieces to wear with this stunning bracelet.

    Diamanté & Sterling 1930s Line Bracelet by Otis

    , ,

    This lovely example of an Art Deco line bracelet, the forerunner of today’s tennis bracelet, features faceted, square-cut diamanté channel-set in rhodium-plated sterling silver.  Engraved edges and a diamanté-encrusted fold-over clasp complete the piece. The excellent articulation speaks to the high-quality construction of this bracelet, which actually was the same as that used by Wachenheimer Bros. (Read about the companies’ connection.) Bracelets in this style (known as flexible bracelets in that era) were all the rage in the 1920s-1930s and were typically worn in multiples. You can see this one paired with other line bracelets in the photos. Although the stones have aged a bit, this piece still has lots of sparkle. Scroll down to see coordinating pieces.

    Sapphire & Crystal 1920s Pendant Earrings

    , ,

    These unusual Art Deco pendant earrings feature a large faceted crystal bead with a deep-sapphire-blue bottom.  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 also sterling. Scroll down to see a selection of necklaces and bracelets to wear with these stylish earrings.

    Sapphire & Sterling Filigree Art Deco Bracelet by Granbery

    This 1920s bracelet with faux sapphires and sterling silver filigree has the same detail and craftsmanship as Art Deco filigree bracelets fashioned from gold and platinum. The slide-in safety clasp is the same type as those used in fine pieces. This one is a bit wider than usual, too. Granbery Flexible Bracelets were advertised in the June 1925 issue of The Keystone, a trade publication. This bracelet is no longer available, but a similar one by the same maker is – scroll down to see it.
