The story goes that in 1934 Eugene Joseff criticized the use of historically incorrect jewelry in Hollywood films. Premier costume designer Walter Plunkett responded, 'Well, if you're so smart, let's see what you can do!'. And do it, he did.

Joseff became a leading supplier of costume jewelry to Hollywood film studios with a retail line for sale to the public. His designs never stopped being highly desirable...from Greta Garbo, Grace Kelly and Vivian Leigh to this very vintage jewelry peddler right here. Joseff of Hollywood is something special.

This is a Joseff clip from the 1930s. The two things that stand out are the architectural Art Deco design and the Russian gold finish. He created the semi-matte Russian gold plating to minimize the problem of reflection flare when filming real gold or substitutes under powerful studio lights. The Russian gold proved to be a popular aesthetic that everyone liked so Joseff created Russian gold jewelry for the public as well.

This Russian gold-plated clip measures 1 by 2 inches. The clip back is mostly silvertone with a sturdy hinge. Marked JOSEFF HOLLYWOOD.

We rarely find anything by this outstanding designer so are thrilled to offer this clip of Joseff.

Excellent vintage condition.
