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!
Round, baguette and marquis-shaped diamanté adorn this large geometric Art Deco brooch that can also be worn as separate dress clips. The setting is rhodium-plated with lovely cut-outs. The photos show a third option for wearing this piece: one clip worn as a pendant on a black rubber cord; you may prefer to use a silver or white-gold 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. Although the findings were made by Whitaker-Fielding Co., this piece is unsigned. You can see the utility patent for the dress clips here, beneath Fielding's name, and the brooch mechanism patent here, the second drawing beneath Fielding's name.

Whether Deweesis the name of the company or their trademark, I can't be sure. But the answer doesn't really matter because this 1940s fur clip is beautiful in design and construction. Faceted emerald-cut and round emerald glass stones are set in rhodium-plated sterling silver, in contrast to the pavé on the rest of the piece. You can wear it on the shoulder or lapel of a jacket, on the shoulder of a dress or sweater, and on a hat or a scarf. Scroll down to see a selection of coordinating pieces.
This well-known Frank Hess World War II design features a bunch of emerald glass beads atop and hanging from silver metal leaves inset with diamanté. In typical Haskell style, the large beads have metal tips. The pierced plastic back is finished with a dress clip. This piece is unsigned, but the maker is well documented. At this stage of its life, this lovely dress clip needs to be handled with care.
This classic and well-made 1920s-1930s Art Deco chicklet necklace features square-cut faceted citrine glass stones set in sterling silver frames with a spring-ring clasp. I have citrine earrings and bracelets that look great with the shade of citrine in this necklace – scroll down to take a look.
A layer of berries is attached to openwork leaves in this substantial gold-plated sterling silver 1940s Retro Modern piece by NettieRosenstein. The hook-and-eye construction is a sign of the high quality of this maker's two-prong fur clip. No wonder her jewelry is highly-prized!
