This 1950s coral, pearl and gold brooch and earrings set by Hattie Carnegie executes one of her common themes — florals — to perfection. The enameled leaves look as though they’re blowing in the breeze. The detail is superb — even the backs of the brooch and earrings show the leaves’ veins. A faux pearl adds a nice accent to each piece. The brooch has a roll-over safety clasp; the earrings are clip-backs.
