This jeweled brooch is a bouquet of sterling silver flowers, stems, and leaves. They are tied in a bow and accented with collet-set pink tourmaline, pale sapphire and peridot glass stones. This brooch, with its roll-over safety clasp, is another example of the fine hand-made 1940s jewelry Hobé is known for. I particularly love the size and vertical orientation of this jewel.
