A discussion came up on the Buttonbytes Button Collectors site about four different sets with round glass insets, with wire backs and frames just like this pair, that could be used as earrings in one direction and dress clips in the opposite direction. Someone believes them to be absolutely to be dress clips, but the pair that I inherited from my great grandmother has a distinctive basket of flowers design that if used as a dress clip, would be up-side-down! These jet or black glass with inset stones are 3/4" x 1 1/8". Have you ever seen this sort of back wire clip before? I looked through 4 collectors books on antique jewelry and found nothing. Please help, and a reference as to verifying the information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
