This is so aggravating, I know I've seen these, or at least something very like them. Are they used for decoration on clothing?

Well, Picqero said they weren't interchangable --

Picqero, time for a clue?

OK Jar, here's a clue: Tredici has got it right - they do open up. Look again at the image, and you'll see the outer metal ring is in segments held together by hingepins.
They're nothing to do with lights or watches, nor are they worn on clothing.

Ahhh, wait a minute. Are they safety reflectors for a bicycle?

No, no, no, and no! Perhaps they should be described more as 'fashion accessories' than jewellery - but they are also very useful as well as being fashionable

Aha, at last someone's getting 'warm'
As Jar reminded you, they're not interchangeable, and not closures but definitely associated with handbags!

That's on the same track of what I was thinking, Rayven. Like a 'thing' that goes over the clasp (or whatever) that closes it and you can put different colored ones on.

They are a selection of foldable handbag/purse hangers - like this one:

I guess you open the hinges, hang your purse on one end of it and hook the other end on the edge of a table to keep it off the floor...

That's it, well done Verbonica
A very practical fashion accessory, instead of having to put their handbags on the floor or back of their chair while dining, ladies can hang them indiscreetly from the table.
I saw them for sale in Warsaw, last December, and bought a few as Christmas presents.
You can see them in use, plus a few more varieties here

I used to have thing for hanging my bag on a table about forty years ago, I don't remember what it looked like but it wasn't pretty like that.

Do I get any points for saying handbags?
Wow, $25 for just one? That's a bit steep.

A boon to those who are afflicted with the superstition that it is bad luck to let your purse touch the floor (you will lose all your money ), but then it's also bad luck to put it on a table or a bed (or who knows what else) - what to do, what to do?


(p.s. - indiscreetly?)


...and yes, jordandog, your "handbag" contribution was ever so helpful!
