This 1950s brooch and ear clips set by Hattie Carnegie executes one of her common themes – florals – to perfection. Each piece is made with coral enamel on gold-tone metal with a faux pearl accent. The design and detail are superb: the leaves look as though they’re blowing in the breeze, and the backs of the brooch and ear clips show the leaves’ veins. The brooch has a roll-over safety clasp. You could wear these pieces together or separately, for different looks. The brooch would also look great with simple pearl stud earrings. A perfect set for a woman who looks best in warm colors.
