This citrine jewelry set by Hobé is just stunning! The tall brooch features flowers in shades of citrine glass atop sterling silver stems, surrounded by leaves and buds. They are all wrapped in ribbon and tied with a bow. The earring centers of citrine glass are surrounded by furled petals. The brooch has a rollover safety clasp; the earrings are screw-backs. Pieces by this maker were all hand-made and very three-dimensional. This set is extraordinary! Scroll down to see a 1940s sterling bracelet with citrine flowers by the same maker.
