This fur clip is beautiful in design and construction. Faceted emerald-cut and round emerald-glass stones, in sharp contrast to the diamanté and rhodium-plated sterling silver setting. This color combination is rich and versatile You can wear this piece on the shoulder or lapel of a jacket, on the shoulder of a dress or sweater, or on a hat or a scarf. Although this piece is marked, I cannot identify the maker. The design and use of sterling make me think it’s from the 1940s. But I don’t think these details matter – this clip is stunning!

    Emerald, Diamanté & Sterling 1930s Line Bracelet by Otis

    , ,

    This vintage line bracelet by Otis features faceted, square-cut emerald-glass stones channel-set in rhodium-plated sterling silver. The piece is finished with engraved edges and a diamanté-encrusted fold-over clasp. The color of the emeralds is rich and lush. The superb articulation speaks to the high-quality construction of the piece, which was the same as that of Wachenheimer Brothers. (Read about their connection with Otis.) Line bracelets (known as flexible bracelets in that era) were all the rage in the 1920s-1930s and were typically worn in multiples. You could wear this one with another line bracelet by the same maker or with a filigree bracelet with emeralds, as shown in the last images.
