Pink Tourmaline, Sapphire, Peridot & Sterling Bouquet Brooch by Hobé

Pink Tourmaline, Sapphire, Peridot & Sterling Bouquet Brooch by Hobé


Additional information




4" x 1 7/8"




c.1944 (based on dates of similar design patents)


"Hobé" (in script) and "STERLING" within triangle shape


Similar to two designs patented by William W. Hobé in 1944: D138,978 and D139,339

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. Scroll down to see one of this maker’s bracelets with a floral motif that coordinates well with this brooch.
