Quickview Vintage Dress & Fur Clips, 1940s Jewelry, Nettie Rosenstein Jewelry
A layer of berries is attached to openwork leaves in this substantial piece by Nettie Rosenstein. Made of gold-plated sterling silver in the 1940s, this fur clip was designed to fasten together fur pieces that women wore around their shoulders. Even though few of us engage in that style of fashion today, we can still wear decorative, high-quality pieces like this one. The difference between a fur clip and brooch is that the former has two prongs instead of a single pin. A clip like this one looks great on the shoulder or lapel of a dress, jacket, or coat – the fabric just needs to be weightier to support the jewel. No wonder this maker’s jewelry is highly-prized!
