The heart-shaped dress clips in this 1950s Hattie Carnegie creation have three layers of diamanté topped with large, round, faceted emerald glass stones. What a sparkling confection! The setting is rhodium-plated, and the color combination is striking. The layers make this piece very three-dimensional. It 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 sterling silver chain (which is not included). A white-gold one would also work well. How’s that for a three-in-one jewel!
