This Art Deco Bakelite brooch is not for the faint-hearted! From the 1930s, this large black piece has ornate molding that simulates carving. Faceted, square-cut and round diamanté, which were expertly replaced by the previous owner, are a sparkly contrast to the dark color. At 3 ¾” long, this brooch is a real statement piece. It closes with a roll-over safety clasp. If you like this design but prefer something smaller, scroll down to see the matching shield-shaped dress clip.

    This stunning Art Deco dress clip features a large black Bakelite diamond-shaped carved shield with newly-replaced (by the previous owner) square and round diamanté. (The plastic was molded to simulate carving.) You can wear this piece as a dress clip or as a necklace on a black rubber cord, as shown in the last photo. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless steel twist lock is included with this purchase. If you are looking for something bigger and bolder, I have the matching brooch – scroll down to see it.
