DEROSA acrostic "Regards" rhinestone spray fur clip with colorful rhinestones, circa 1940s

Designer: DeRosa
Price: $238.00
Description DEROSA acrostic "Regards" rhinestone spray fur clip in gold plated silver, circa 1940s, 2-1/3".

These are faceted glass rhinestones, but are colors that represent the first letters of the gem stones ruby, emerald, garnet, amethyst, ruby, diamonds and sapphire which acrostically spells out the word "regards".

There is some finish wear, as often happens on these older DeRosa pieces, and some of the clear rhinestones have grayed with age, so this is priced accordingly.

It is still a lovely and wearable piece.  It is marked on the back "R DeRosa".

DeRosa did others of these romantic acrostic pieces, each of which spelled out a message of love and regards, and they can be seen in the book, "Jewels of Fantasy" by Deanna Cera on page 158.  In the book, "Swarovski, a Celebrating a History of Collaborations in Fashion, Jewelry, Performance & Design" on page 149, a DeRosa brooch similar to this one is featured, so DeRosa used Swarovski crystals in at least some if not all of their pieces.    View
