Pavé set with clear rhinestones, this vintage late 1930s leaf-shaped white metal dress clip features a row of mauve or dark pink moonglow lucite cabochons down the center. The curving, dimensional shape of the clip—complete with double stem on top of the leaf and "curl" at the bottom tip—is artfully blanketed with the rhinestones, which provide a wonderful contrast to the gorgeous shade of the moonglow.
The prongset cabs graduate in size from 3/8" to 5/8", and the clip measures 2 ¾" x 1 5/8". Excellent condition; the finish to the silver- or rhodium-plated back is bright and shiny, and the stones (all present) sparkle brilliantly though some have a touch of age-related clouding.
