Vintage Bakelite jewelry as beautiful as this German flexible bracelet from the 1930s is hard to find. It has vertical links of diamanté alternating with black Bakelite. The stones in this piece are relatively large – only four to each flat-top link. This Art Deco bracelet closes with a concealed clasp. Because one of the markings is “Patented” (an English word stamped by a German maker), I think this bracelet was intended for export.

    Diamanté German Fringe Earrings

    , ,
    These fringe earrings are the most amazing I’ve ever seen! A full inch of fringe dangles beneath a frame formed by an array of rhodium-plated links with channel-set diamanté. (They are much brighter than the first photo indicates.) At the top is a single stone. Great articulation! The original ear clips were replaced by sterling silver posts for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. The design and construction of this pair remind of Machine Age-style pieces produced in Germany in the 1930s. A rare find for someone who wants to make a statement!

    Diamanté & Bakelite 1930s Plaque Necklace by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,
    This plaque necklace made in Germany in the 1930s has tapered, curved links of diamanté on either side of a black Bakelite disk. It is topped with a large, claw-set diamanté surrounded by smaller stones. When laid out on a table, the necklace forms a wide v-shape. A scroll chain with a spring-ring clasp completes this beautiful piece from my personal collection. Although some stones have aged, this necklace still has lots of sparkle.

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté 1930s Earrings by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,
    At the top of these 1930s earrings is a link with engraved sides that holds seven diamanté. At the bottom is another diamanté -set link flanked by black Bakelite on three sides. In the middle is a single stone. Each earring has a small chip of Bakelite at the bottom, but that minor flaw in no way detracts from their beauty. The original ear clips were converted to sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler.

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté Machine Age Necklace by Schreiber & Hiller

    I love the design of this Machine Age necklace! Six curved links set with diamanté alternate with black Bakelite links with roof-shaped (pointed) tops. Because the jeweled links are curved, the centerpiece follows the curve of your neck instead of laying out in a straight line. A scroll chain with a spring-ring-clasp completes this elegant and easy-to-wear necklace that I always enjoyed.

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté German Choker

    , ,
    This vintage Bakelite necklace is probably from Germany. It has curved links of black Bakelite alternating with slightly larger curved links of channel-set diamanté. The components are threaded on a chain with metal spacers between each link. When laid out on a table, the necklace retains a slightly curved shape. The back of one of the Bakelite links has a small chip (shown in the last photo), but the appearance and integrity of the piece have not been compromised. This necklace was made for a slim neck, so please note the length (14 3/4") and check your neck size before purchasing this piece. The look of this necklace is Machine Age and very classy.
