Carnelian Ring German 1920s Earrings
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.

ArchivesThis 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.$ 345
