This gorgeous horizontal, sterling silver bow brooch is a larger and more elaborate variation of a popular Hobé theme. Flowing buds are graceful embellishments to the trio of aquamarine glass stones that follows the curve of each ribbon loop. The gold-plated sterling flower in the center is a stunning rendition of my favorite Hobé form. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp.
