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-glass baguettes emanate from a pavé center in these classic 1950s ear clips by Hattie Carnegie. The setting is rhodium-plated. These elegant earrings coordinate beautifully with a brooch by the same maker in a similar design. Pieces like these never go out of style and always look gorgeous wherever they're worn. I got to see them sparkle on a model who walked the runway at Toronto Fashion Week 2019. Scroll down to see the coordinating brooch as well as bracelets to wear with these earrings.

    Emerald, Diamanté & Sterling 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 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. I was delighted to see this jewel worn by a model on the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019! She was also adorned with a necklace and earrings, which are among the coordinating pieces shown below. Can you pick out the other runway jewels?
