Carnelian Ring German 1920s Earrings

Carnelian Ring German 1920s Earrings


Additional information




3 1/8" x 1"






"Sterling Germany" on original screw-backs; "925" on butterfly clasp

These vintage carnelian earrings feature rings and beads suspended from sterling silver chain. At 3 1/8” in length, these fabulous German Art Deco creations are fun to wear. I love the way the chain goes around the rings. This “life-saver” motif was popular in 1920s jewelry. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver posts for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings are from my personal collection. Carnelian is a beautiful and versatile color for women who look best in warm hues. Scroll down to see two complimentary bracelets – one is German-made.

    Carnelian Bracelet in Sterling by Wachenheimer Bros.


    Carnelian Bracelet in Sterling by Wachenheimer Bros.

    This vintage carnelian bracelet features six round, polished stones prong-set on round, open-back frames. In between each is a decorative link with a smaller stone. The setting is sterling silver. This piece was part of the company’s Wachenheimer Real Stone Jewelry line introduced in the late-1920s. The style is quite a departure from their Diamonbar pieces but no less lovely. This bracelet, which closes with a concealed clasp, was part of my personal collection. Carnelian is a rich, warm, and versatile color. Scroll down to see a German-made carnelian bracelet from the same era.

    Carnelian, Onyx, Marcasite & Sterling German Bracelet

    , ,
    This vintage carnelian bracelet has faceted glass stones set in rectangular panels. Each is outlined with alternating faux onyx and marcasites. Even the connecting links are adorned. This sterling silver piece is an excellent example of high-quality German craftsmanship of the 1920s-1930s. Based on its width, I'm dating this jewel to the 1920s, when bracelets were narrow and often worn in multiples. This piece has a concealed clasp with a safety catch and was part of my personal collection.
