This bold and beautiful 1950s double- clip brooch by Hattie Carnegie features large cabochon-cut, pear-shaped emerald glass stones, surrounded by round cabochon-cut emerald and ruby glass stones, faux pearls and diamanté. The setting is gold-tone metal. This piece can be worn as a brooch (at different angles, as shown) 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 gold chain. The photos also show how the piece comes apart. Because one of the large emerald stones has lost one of its claws, I strongly advise you to pull the clips apart by grasping the pearl edges. My expert jeweler cleaned and re-glued the affected stone, so it is now secure. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless steel twist lock (which is shown in the photo) is included with this purchase.
