The Details...

This dress clip is most likely constructed from silver. It is detailed with black enamel and small, round and baguette cut clear paste stones. It is stamped on its reverse with a 'B.' - but it hasn't been pssible to identify this maker. The dress clip  measures 3cm x 3.5cm. 

A Short History...

During the 1920s and early 1930s, jewellery was influenced by the dawn of a new era. There was a push for all things modern after the shock of the First World War - people wanted to be cleansed of the old and celebrate the new. In the world of design a pure, hard-edged style was craved. This resulted in linear, geometric jewellery designs. This style was often combined with feminine motifs to cater for the Flapper girls. Such a combination of ideas can be seen in this beautiful dress clip.

Wear it With...

This dress clip is perfect for evening wear or a special occasion. It would look beautiful with a little black dress, but equally chic with a bridal gown. Alternatively, wear it in the day - pinned to the top of a buttoned up crisp white shirt.
