Dress clips were popular from the 1920'2 until the early 1950's.  They have a clip at the back with little spikes (not to be mistaken for earrings and put one the ears!).  They were worn on dresses - one on a v-neck or a pair on a square neck.  They could be worn on jacket lapels - or even clipped onto hats.  Customers are often unsure what to do with them.  Apart from the usual uses they can be hung on a chain or put on a rigid torque (see small picture).  If I have a boring clutch bag I would made a small slit and insert the dress clip so only the front shows.  A pair can sometimes be used as shoe clips.  If you want to wear it as a brooch - insert a safety pin from the back of the garment so the pin shows at the front - and hook the dress clip off it.  There are lots of ways to use dress clips!
