    Hi guys,

    I could not find another example of this color I think these are Art Deco, Czech, bicone crystal but that is all I could figure out. Not sure if I am totally correct Is there a name for the ball pendant and the color of the other pointy things? Marked ter which I first thought was Western Germany but now I am thinking possibly sterling I will test it once I get a good stone

    Hope everyone is keeping well!!

    Beautiful, gauntlett.
    The bicones are glass 'Rheinkiesel' or rhinestones, called after rock crystals found in the Rhine River, which display rich rainbow colours.
    In North America the term rhinestone came to be used for the type of faceted glass which the English call 'paste'. But these are the real Czech-made rhinestones, beautiful and highly sought after.

    Aquitaine Is What It IS! But NEVER BORED!

    The clasp looks more like it says "STER"....which should be short for 'sterling' ????

    I was so mesmerized by the bicones that I completely forgot your other questions.:oops:
    Yes it is Art Deco, and yes it is sterling. This original rhinestone or iris glass belonged to the special and more expensive types of glass. I have only ever seen them with silver.
    Below is one of mine, set in silver, ca 1920. This is the seller's pic, I cleaned it when it came in, a huge difference.:)

    Lol. I know, they are soooo pretty. I saw some emerald cut necklaces that I like. I’d have to modify it for length but... I’m hooked
