Do remnants serve as ornamentation? (10)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'as ornamentation?' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this definition defines the answer.

'do remnants serve' is the wordplay.
'serve' is an anagram indicator (I've seen 'served' mean this).
'doremnants' with letters rearranged gives 'ADORNMENTS'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for adornments that I've seen is " Embellishments".)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
