Reference

Utility patent # 2,050,804 (for clip/brooch mechanism) issued to Alfred Philippe in 1936

Trifari costume jewelry of the late-1930s included the Clip-Mate, their version of the double-clip brooch. This example features loops of diamanté-encrusted ribbons. The setting is rhodium-plated. 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 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. Wear this piece with faux or real diamond studs for an added touch of sparkle. You can see the utility patent for the brooch mechanism here, shown below Trifari’s name.
