Large jade-art-glass nuggets set in gold-plated metal are the focal point of this 1950s brooch and earrings set by Hobé. The oval-shaped brooch has two nuggets surrounded by faux pearls and glass stones in amethyst, sapphire, and citrine. These embellishments are in various shapes and sizes. An overlay of gold-plated filigree flowers with tiny sapphire centers complete the brooch. It closes with a roll-over safety clap. The ear clips each have one jade nugget with a semi-circle of the same colorful stones. The earrings face each other, so they will frame your face to perfection. The combination of elements and the complexity of design make this set very special. It’s a great example of Hobé’s ’50s Glam look.
