This richly-detailed and textured sterling silver flower brooch and earrings set by Hobé doesn’t need a colored stone to make it sparkle. Notice the multiple layers on the petals. The earrings replicate the ornate center of the brooch. It has a roll-over safety clasp; the earrings are screw-backs. This set is one of the maker’s more unusual designs from the 1940s.

Panels of flowers and leaves joined with decorative links, all in sterling silver, form this 1940s bracelet. As in all of Hobé's work in this era, this piece was hand-made. It closes with a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp. This bracelet is longer than most from this period. You could wear this beautiful piece with any of my Hobé brooches with a floral motif – scroll down to see a selection.

A single aquamarine glass stone-centered flower is surrounded by flowers and leaves applied to the ribbons of the bow that forms this sterling silver 1940s brooch by Hobé. An aquamarine glass stone is at the center of each bow-shaped earring. The detail on these pieces is a superb example of the maker's craftsmanship. The brooch has a roll-over safety clasp, and the earrings are clip-backs. The same floral motif is used in Hobé's Aquamarine & Sterling Flower Bracelet -- scroll down to see it.
Huge multi-faceted, oval brown topaz glass stones with layers of citrine and clear inverted glass stone accents in elaborate gold-tone settings form this 1950s set by Schreiner. Even if the pieces weren't signed, the gorgeous glass, inverted stones, ornate settings and donut-hole clip-backs scream SCHREINER! This great color combination is stunning in any season. The dome-shaped brooch, which has a roll-over safety clasp, can also be worn as a pendant. The last photo shows that option on a black rubber cord, although you may prefer a gold chain. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless steel twist lock (just like the one in the photo) is included with this purchase.
Jade art glass; amethyst, sapphire and citrine glass stones; and faux pearls set in gold-plated metal with an overlay of filigree flowers and leaves form this 1950s brooch and earrings set by Hobé.

This set is a great example of Hobé's'50s Glam look.
These two 1940s rose gold-plated sterling silver flowers edged in diamanté with ruby glass stone centers can be worn together as a brooch or as separate fur clips. This Coro Retro Modern Duette— their name for their double clip/brooch — has matching earrings. This versatile set showcases one of Adolph Katz's brilliant designs from both an aesthetic and engineering point of view. For Duettes that were asymmetrical like this one, the clip/brooch frame had to be customized to work with the particular pair of clips. Truly gorgeous! You can see the utility patent for the brooch mechanism here, shown below Coro's name. This design was advertised by Coro as Sparkling Peonies.
