A cabochon of garnet-colored glass rests on a golden brass dress clip, circa 1920. The top looks like an ancient column that mixes the classic beauty of Ionic spirals with Egyptian-inspired flourishes. The back of this clip is in wonderful working order with sharp teeth to catch onto the fabric and hold it securely in place for worry-free wear. This piece can also be turned into a pendant by clipping it over a chain and looks especially fabulous with flapper beads!
