Today's listings of belt slides, buckles and sash ornaments don't fit neatly into any jewelry category. This type of accessory isn't really on our radar today but I think it should be. And not just for brides! Wearing a piece of jewelry at the bodice of a gown, to accent a high-waisted skirt or to dress up the tie of a plain coat is a great way to add a personal touch to an outfit. These types of things (much like dress clips) are quite versatile, too. For example, belt slides can often be slipped onto scarves and sew-on ornaments can usually be pinned into the hair, especially if you have an up-do!
Here are a couple other things in the shop that fit into this fun, much neglected category of vintage accessories:
DOWNTON rhinestone slide
METEORITE Art Deco arched slide
MISS MAPLE brass and silver buckle
