1960's Interchangeable RAU Klikit Snap Disk Earrings in Five Colors

Rau Fasteners of Providence, Rhode Island, first used the Klikit trade mark on fasteners in January of 1940. It was used by them until the company, both American and Canadian factories, were sold to Scovill in 1990. Mostly found on articles of clothing, but also used for jewelry.

This is an example of one kind of jewelry that was made using Klikit snaps. They are clip-back earring fasteners attached to a silver-tone disk measuring 1 1/2" across, with one-half of the snap fastener attached to the metal disk. The other half of the snap in on the back of colorful light weight plastic disks that measure only 1" across. The plastic disks are easy to snap on and off to change your earrings to match your outfits. And, what colors! Aqua, pale blue, yellow, pink and white.

All of the colorful disks are in excellent condition. Only a very small amount of scuffs can be seen on the white disks. The silver-tone metal disks are also in good shape, however one does have a small dark spot near the rim, and several on the back where they would not be seen.

Perfect for collectors, these are hard to find in a complete set anymore.
