Faux 'n Fab: French Art Deco Paste Bracelet
Claire Phillips, author and curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum characterizes Art Deco jewelry design as “dense concentrations of precious stones, ranked together in geometric patterns and held by the most delicate and discreet platinum or white-gold settings.” That is most certainly an apt description of the glamorous and sleek streamlined forms that conveyed the Art deco sense of sophistication and elegance.
Crafted in that unmistakable ultimate Deco style, this French paste and silver bracelet artfully brings forth the all the glamour and glitter without stressing the purse strings. Round gems of faceted clear paste are set into a hand made sterling silver mount and fashioned into the classic flexible band style bracelet of the time. A pavé of clear paste and the whiteness of silver display a panorama of the tenets of design. Hand engraved side details subtly accent the understated nature of Art Deco chic.
The box is from France and has printed on the interior “Pearles Lisia Joillerie 115. Champs Elysées ?17, Paris” and in smaller letters “Cannes, Vichy, Biarritz” and may be original to the bracelet.
