Art Deco Sterling Silver Lapis Lazuli and Marcasite Bracelet, circa 1920’s
Great Gatsby + The Flapper + Jazz + TONS of fringe moving to and fro and everywhere in between. Welcome to the dawning of a new time where women started wearing “the pants” literally, earned the right to vote, and were the first generation of the new modern woman. Watch out, because she is about to kill it!!! The world was partying like there was no tomorrow in the 1920’s. It was positively roaring!!! What was a lady to wear to all these parties?
Germany was manufacturing jewelry to sell to Europe and the US after WWI. This bracelet was made in Germany in the 1920’s using sterling silver set around three rectangular lapis lazuli stones, and adorned with many many marcasites twinkling as the light caught their many facets. All of the stones were set by hand. It is stamped STERLING on the back of each of the links and stamped STERLING GERMANY on the spring ring clasp. The bracelet articulates gracefully as it is wrapped around the wrist.
This charming bracelet has travelled through time, lived a dozen lives, experienced a dozen worlds and could tell you a dozen epic love stories.
