Black Enamel, Diamanté & Sterling Double Clip Brooch

Black Enamel, Diamanté & Sterling Double Clip Brooch


Additional information


Ralph De Rosa


Brooch: 2 1/4" x 1 1/8"; clip: 1 1/8" x 1 1/8"






"STERLING" on clips; "R.DEROSA" on frame

This enamel brooch with diamanté embellishments in a sterling silver setting was made by Ralph De Rosa in the late-1940s. The detailed design is a fine example of this exceptional maker’s work. This piece can be worn as a single brooch or as separate dress clips. (The double-prong fastener works well with heavier fabrics, such as wool dresses or blazers.) The photos show a third option: one clip worn as a pendant on a sterling silver or white-gold chain (neither is included). I’ve used necklaces from my own jewelry box to show you how beautiful they look with the clip and how versatile this jewel is. I would wear faux or real diamond studs with this gorgeous piece.
