    Sapphire & Sterling Bow 1940s Brooch & Earrings Set by Hobé

    , , ,
    This 1940s sapphire and sterling silver set by Hobé is a bit smaller and more restrained than others in the collection, but it is just as beautiful. A deep-sapphire-blue glass stone is the center of the flower that sits atop the six-loop bow that forms the brooch. The ribbons are adorned with applied leaves and buds. The pin has a roll-over safety clasp. The screw-back earrings are bow-shaped, with sapphire centers.

    Sapphire Lava Rock & Amethyst 1950s Brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli

    Sapphire, Diamanté & Gold Spiral 1950s Duette by Coro

    , ,
    Gold-plated spirals are adorned with sapphire-glass baguettes and pavé centers on this 1950s Duette, Coro's name for their double clip brooch. It is like a "two for one"! Wear it as a brooch or as separate dress clips. Their double-prong fastener works well with heavier fabrics, such as wool blazers and dresses. The all-diamanté version of this piece appeared in a 1950 Coro ad in Life with the slogan "the perfect jewel of a gift" and with the price of $10.50! (In 1950, the average U.S. family income was $81.48 a week.) You can see the utility patent for the brooch mechanism here, shown below Coro's name.

  • Reinad brooch & earrings with sapphires & diamante
    Rose vermeil sterling brooch w/sapphires & diamante
    $ 375

    Sapphire, Diamanté & Rose Vermeil Sterling 1940s Reinad Brooch & Earrings

    , , ,
    This Reinad brooch with matching earrings feature rose-gold-washed sterling silver set with large, faceted, triangular sapphire-glass stones and diamanté accents. This set is a wonderful example of the Retro Modern style of the 1940s. I couldn’t decide if the brooch should be worn horizontally or vertically until I saw Anne Baxter wearing one like it in the 1946 movie Angel on my Shoulder. Hers was perfectly placed in the vertical position at the base of her V-neckline. She even wore the matching earrings. The pin has a roll-over safety clasp, and the earrings are screw-backs. I’ve included a photo of the brooch in the horizontal position, so you can decide if you prefer it that way. A similar piece was shown in a 1945 wholesaler’s catalog. The page was entitled “New Pink Gold Finish on Sterling Silver — Styled by Master Craftsmen” (who were not named). The brooch was $28.50 retail, and the earrings were $13.50, or $42.00 for the set. (While I don’t have income statistics for the mid-1940s, to put these prices in perspective, the U.S. government reported that by 1950, the average American household’s weekly income was about $81.)
