What is a C Clasp
As a general rule of thumb, a C Clasp, without the locking part, indicates that the pin or brooch is old. There are exceptions to every rule, of course and this one is no exception, so other details such as the setting, type of stones, etc have to be taken into consideration to determine the age of the piece. Most modern C clasps can be indentified because the metal looks newer and is less well made. Old C clasps look to be more of a permanent part of the pin, rather than an addition.
