Pink Tourmaline & Sterling Flower 1940s Hobé Brooches

Pink Tourmaline & Sterling Flower 1940s Hobé Brooches


Additional information




1 1/4" diameter




Early 1940s


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

This pair of Hobé brooches is delicate and lovely. Each is a flower with a deep-pink tourmaline (almost fuchsia) center. The sterling petals on one side are furled; those on the other side feature a beautiful open-work design that is known as fretwork. You can wear the pair together on the shoulder of a dress or jacket, or on either side of a collar. What a lovely adornment for a bride’s hair! These brooches were hand-made. Although they’re marked “DESIGN PAT’D”, I have been unable to identify a design patent that looks like them.
