This is a beautiful piece of vintage Deco jewelry. The whole pin is 2-5/8" long by just under an inch wide. It is marked on the back Coro Craft and Coro Duette. It comes apart to make two dress clips or fur clips, each 1-1/2" long, with 5/8" prongs. The stones are all present, with hardly any discoloration. This is done in white metal - the photos may make it look yellow, but that's the fault of the photographer (me).
This duette measures 2-1/8" long by 1" wide. It comes apart to make two fur clips or dress clips. It is hard to see from a distance, but there are 3 small rhinestones missing, and some of the stones have yellowed over the years. The pin and the mechanism are all in working order, and if you can replace the missing rhinestones, you will have a lovely vintage piece. The photos make this piece look like it is in yellow metal. It is not. It's white metal, not silver.
This is a 3-1/4" long duette pin that comes apart to make two fur clips or dress clips. Each half is about 1-1/2" long by a little less than 1-1/4" wide. It is marked on the back Pat. Pend. This piece dates from the 1920s-30s, and has all its rhinestones. There is very little discoloration of the stones. Wear it as one big pin, or take it apart for two smaller clips on a lapel. Very eye-catching!
This is a very elegant piece of history that can be worn on a lapel, a scarf, or even on a chain as a necklace! Very detailed wavy leaves dance across the surface, and hold 10 perfect marquis shaped amethyst rhinestones. Even the clip on the back is etched with a decorative organic pattern.

This is really a beautiful old piece - gold plated over sterling and made to look like an enameled pansy bloom. There is a brilliant blue faceted rhinestone prong set in the middle. The diameter each way is about 1 3/4". The metal is nice and shiny, and the clip works well. The only damage to the enamel is a tiny round spot that you should be able to see in the close up picture, right at about 11:00 on the top flower petal. The rest of it is perfect...
A nice quality antique 3-3/4" x 1" Chinese cinnabar and multicolour enamel floral dress clip c1900 (or earlier). This clip features a filigree silver setting with a spring-hinged long dress clip clasp; it has a toothed rake at the end to hold it to the fabric. It may have originally been a brooch or some other decoration, these pieces were sometimes converted to dress clips after 1910, and the clip section doesn't appear to be added, but may have been...
Treasured by a lady who kicked up her heels celebrating the end of World War I, these VICTORY brand antique shoe buckles are truly fascinating pieces of the past. Being marked PAT 12/23/19 (presumably for their clever fastening mechanism), they're precisely dated to the transitional decade between Edwardian and Art Deco times (1910-1920). What came to be known as Deco design was gradually coming to the fore then, replacing organic curves with sleek geometry...
Everything about these antique shoe clips says quality. They just don't make them like this anymore. The repoussé metalwork, formed to resemble cut steel, is so finely finished that the front surfaces feel silky -- and the backs actually have liners covered with silky fabric, as well as wonderfully sturdy clamps.
Despite their size -- a fairly gigantic 2.25 x 1.5 inches -- these clips can be worn as well by day as in the evening...
The 1940s fur clip has three filigree flowers in gold-tone with yellow-gold faceted glass beads in the center of each. The leaves are gold-tone and show some wear which visually looks like a patina. There is a double pronged clip at the back to anchor the brooch to the fur.

The vintage blue earrings have blue foil cabochons with blue oval beads and blue rhinestones set in silver-tone. The clip-on earrings measure 1 1/8 inches by 3/4 inch and date from the 1960s. They are in good condition.
