This clip is rare having the original colors of red & black on gold over sterling silver, with no missing rhinestones!! This piece has a few spots that to be cleaned. (I did not want to risk damaging any of the original paint, it's just too rare of a find for me to take a chance) Nettie Rosenstein (1890-1980) was an acclaimed Jewish-American fashion designer, based in New York between c.1913 and 1975.
