Reference

Utility patent # 2,583,988 (for earring clasp) issued to Frederick A. Ballou, Jr. & Rogers T. Stafford in 1952 (application filed in 1949)

Three faceted, shield-cut topaz-glass stones – two golden and one brown – with citrine accents form these ear clips by Elsa Schiaparelli. The exotic three-sided shape of the large stones enhances the three-leaf clover design in gold-tone metal. These details and the elaborate construction of the earring backs exemplify this maker’s ingenuity and quality. This color combination – which is perfect for those who look best in warm colors – can be found in other Schiaparelli pieces. You can see the utility patent for the earring clasp here, shown below the names Frederick A. Ballou, Jr. & Rogers T. Stafford.
