Nettie Rosenstein


2 1/2" x 2 3/8"




Mid- to late-1940s


"STERLING" on clip; "Nettie Rosenstein" (in script) on rectangular cartouche

This leaf lapel pin is a substantial piece by New York fashion designer Nettie Rosenstein. A layer of berries is attached to stylized, openwork leaves, creating a three-dimensional effect. Made of gold-plated sterling silver in the 1940s, this dress clip has a hinged, double-prong back. This decorative, high-quality pin looks great on the shoulder or lapel of a dress, jacket, or coat – the fabric just needs to be weightier to support the jewel. No wonder this maker’s jewelry is highly-prized!
