CORO Duette large blue faux star
sapphire and clear rhinestones marked with "patn #1,798,867
for Gaston Candas 1930, 3-5/8". This piece was seen in the book "Hollywood
Costume" by Deborah Nadoolman Landis. View #Y21861


NOTICE: The Victoria &
Albert Museum’s
autumn exhibition,
‘Hollywood Costume’,
October 20, 2012
through January 27, 2013
is "a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see over 100 of the most
iconic costumes in the history of film-making. It explores the central
role costume design plays in cinema storytelling. Bringing together over
100 of the most iconic movie costumes from across a century of
film-making, it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the clothes
worn by unforgettable and beloved characters such as Dorothy Gale,
Indiana Jones, Scarlett O’Hara, Jack Sparrow, Holly Golightly and Darth
Vader."

Thanks to Deborah Landis, my Coro Duette, on the top above, was in this exhibit,
traveling the world more than I ever hope to! It is shown on the
dress in this wonderful movie clip of the 1936 screwball comedy "My
Man Godfrey" (William Powell) showing Carole Lombard wearing a blue star
sapphire and diamond clip at her throat and a matching ring on her
finger (not shown). If you are a lover of 30’s jewelry, become a fan of
the Turner Movie Channel where so many of these 30’s movies can be seen,
commercial free. It is a real treat for both vintage jewelry and classic
movie lovers like me!

An advertisement from the Marshall Field’s Christmas 1939
catalog.
The caption says, "Rhinestone set in rhodium-finished white metal for the
bracelet. $6.50 Matching clipmate brooch which separates into a pair of
clips. $6.50". This also tells us that they were using rhodium plate
as early as 1939
