    Notes: Centerpiece of clip was an Art Deco brooch that was repurposed by a skilled jeweler who didn't ruin it. As Art Deco component is riveted in place, it may be removed an returned to its original brooch form. This "marriage" is well done. The color contrast between the diamonds and emeralds is truly fantastic. Some emeralds are chipped.
