    Diamanté Art Deco Dress Clips

    , ,
    This triangular-shaped pair of Art Deco dress clips is beautifully embellished with baguettes, round diamanté, and a center marquis-shaped stone, all set in rhodium-plated base metal. The cut-outs enhance the intricate design. In addition to wearing one or both clips as intended, you can also wear one as a pendant. The last photo  shows it on a black rubber cord; you may prefer to use a white gold or silver chain. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless steel twist lock (which is shown in the photo) is included with this purchase. Interestingly, the front of these clips is identical to my double-clip brooch (which is shown below), but the dress clip mechanisms are different. Although these clips are marked with a utility patent number, it is unreadable. Quite a mystery!

    Diamanté Floral Art Deco Brooch or Pair of Dress Clips

    , ,
    This geometric diamanté-encrusted Art Deco piece can be worn as a brooch or as two separate dress clips. The photos show a third option: one clip worn as a pendant on a black rubber cord; you may prefer to use a white gold or silver chain. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless steel twist lock (which is shown in the photo) is included with this purchase. The setting is rhodium-plated base metal; the brooch has a roll-over safety clasp. What's curious about this piece is its origin: although it is marked ""PRO. PAT. 864999", I cannot identify the country.

    Gold 2-strand Snake Chain 1940s Necklace by Forstner

    , ,
    This two-strand gold-filled snake chain necklace is the epitome of mid- to late-1940s style. At that time, snake chains were made into necklaces, bracelets, key chains, brooches, and watchbands. Forstner made theirs in rhodium-plated sterling silver, gold-filled, and 10k and 14k gold. Different versions were advertised in Vogue from 1946-1948. An ad for a three-strand necklace like this one was in the November 15, 1948 issue.

    Golden Topaz & Sterling Art Deco Diamonbar Line Bracelet by Wachenheimer Bros.

    , ,
    Faceted golden topaz (or deep citrine) colored glass stones channel-set in sterling silver form this Diamonbar flexible bracelet. It closes with a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp and safety chain. At 7 1/2", this bracelet is longer than most made in this era. Though the patent number is unmarked, the construction of this piece is in accordance with patent number 1,344,365, which was granted to Harry Wachenheimer in 1920. You can see the utility patent here, the second one shown below the maker's name. This piece was part of my personal collection. Scroll down to see a matching brooch.

    Onyx & Crystal Bi-color Bead 1950s Earrings by Alice Caviness

    , ,
    Clusters of black and clear glass bi-colored beads form these 1950s earrings by Alice Caviness. Some of the beads have caps of silver-tone filigree, while other caps are solid metal. These clip-backs were designed in the starburst or atomic motif that was popular in the '50s, yet so versatile and wearable now! What's curious is the way the earrings are signed: the maker's name is stamped on one earring clip and applied to an oval cartouche on the mounting of the other earring.

    Pearl & Blown Glass Flower French 1950s Earrings

    , ,
    Clusters of faux pearls with blown glass flowers and leaves form these 1950s French ear clips. The design and style of the beads remind me of the work of Louis Rousselet, although the earring backs are not typical of his work. However, the findings I'm familiar with would have been too small for this creation. Please note that although these earrings are not mirror images, the lack of symmetry does not detract from their lovely appearance. What a great choice for a bride!

    , ,
    This richly-colored French Art Deco choker features ruby, emerald and sapphire glass beads that dangle from brass links. They are attached to embossed brass leaves that form the clasp, making this piece a true work of art. This necklace was made for an exceptionally slim neck, so please note the necklace length (13 1/2") and check your neck size before purchasing this piece. This lovely necklace was part of my personal collection.
