found in old jewelry. I don't know if their shoe clips or sweater clips. I think shoe clips? Due to slight curve.

    I found these in old family jewelry boxes. After looking online. At sweater clips, I noticed there was such a thing as shoe clips. which I had never heard of before. And I wonder if these are shoe clips or sweater clips. Does anybody have knowledge to share?
    Also I noticed that 1 of the rhinestone appear gray. Is there a way to fix that?

      Hi Peach,
      I am very surprised no one has chimed in, but not all of us are on site 24/7. With that sad excuse I want to welcome you to CW. Another reason is maybe, including me, a lot of us don’t know a lot about shoe clips. That is what I believe I am looking at by the shape of the pieces. Going online and looking at antique shoe clips for comparison should help. I’m going to hunt down a dear friend and see if she can help you,...
      Also, when a rhinestone goes dark ( dead), it means moisture has gotten under the stone and has ruined the foil. Sadly, there is no fix, except to replace it. These stones are prong set, and to replace would be very risky, as once a prong is broke, there is no going back.

      Yes, agree w/Eileen - and they are shoe clips.

      Hi Eileen sent me. I agree with the experts who have spoken, shoe clips. There are places you can send them to have the stones professionally replaced if you are anxious about taking on the task. While there is some danger, as Eileen says, you can learn to do this. Just practice on stuff from a thrift that you don't care about. Shoe clips are the mid 20th century continuation of shoe buckles that go back centuries. Search wikipedia for more info. You can tell they are shoe clips because the clip on the back is so short and the design and construction. Welcome to CW! - Maureen

      Maureen and Eileen and Valentino97,5 thank you so much for your help and advice. I love the idea of practicing on things that are not important. I have a antique jewlers case with assorted glass bottles of rhinestones. I hope to find a match.
