This 1940s sapphire and sterling silver set by Hobé is a bit smaller and more restrained than others in the collection, but it is just as beautiful. A deep-sapphire-blue glass stone is the center of the flower that sits atop the six-loop bow that forms the brooch. The ribbons are adorned with applied leaves and buds. The pin has a roll-over safety clasp. The screw-back earrings are bow-shaped, with sapphire centers.
