This vintage French filigree and rhinestone jewel is a brooch pin and a scarf clip or dress/coat clip which can be worn also as a pendant!
The antiqued silver-plated spray design is 1 7/8" high by 1 1/2" wide by 1/2" deep. The filigree crescent has a row of graduated clovers and beaded edges. The curving arms curl up and over the crescent and spill out from the center. Each ends is a marquise shaped foiled rhinestones; half are dark brown cognac citrine color and half are light yellow citrine.
The clever mechanism on the back has a supporting horizontal bar with vertical metal panel with two gripper teeth on the bottom. This is stamped with the French patent marks "BREVETE S.G.D.G.". The scarf/dress/coat clip ring lifts up on a hinge; you can clip it on a pocket, lapel or hat band or slide a scarf through it. The pin is attached to the clip ring and has a trombone slide clasp. For one more option, you can slip a chain or thin ribbon under the clip hinge and wear the brooch as a pendant (chain shown not included).
The condition is very fine and the stones have excellent sharp facets and sparkle.
