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 Art Deco Brooch or Pair of Dress Clips

    , ,

    Round, baguette and marquis-shaped diamanté adorn this large geometric, vintage 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. It appears in L. & C. Mayers Co.’s 1943 Wholesale Jewelry Catalog. 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.
