Additional information

c.1945 (based on date of similar design patent)


"Hobé STERLING DESIGN PAT'D" on trapezoid-shaped cartouche


Similar to design patent D141,343 issued to William W. Hobé in 1945

This Hobé sterling pin is a basket of layers of beautifully-detailed leaves and flower buds sitting on a twisted-ribbon-like frame. The focal point is a trio of large, faceted, collet-set glass stones in amethyst, emerald, and sapphire. These popular colors and the piece’s size and shape make it very versatile. Jewelry by this maker was well-designed and hand-crafted in this decade. You won’t be disappointed!
