    Pink Tourmaline & Sterling Flower 1940s Hobé Brooches

    , ,
    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. 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.

    Sterling Rose Bough & Wildflowers 1940s Brooch by Hobé

    , ,
    In my opinion, Hobé made the best sterling silver flowers in the 1940s. On this brooch, the large blossom at the center with surrounding buds illustrate his extraordinary design talent and the company's high-level of craftsmanship. Their pieces were all hand-made at this time. The unusual design of this brooch is similar to one that was patented in 1940. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp.

    Pink Tourmaline, Sapphire, Peridot & Sterling Bouquet 1940s Brooch by Hobé

    A bouquet of sterling silver flowers, stems, and leaves 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 sterling silver pieces Hobé is known for. I particularly love the vertical orientation of this piece.

    Sterling Floral 1940s Brooch & Earrings Set by Hobé

    , ,
    This sterling silver floral brooch has richly- detailed, textured layers of buds and leaves that emanate from the multi-layered flower in the center. In my opinion, the quality of Hobé's flowers is unsurpassed. The earrings replicate the center of the brooch. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp; the earrings have screw-backs. This set is one of the maker's more unusual designs from the 1940s and doesn't need any colored stones to make it sparkle. Scroll down to see a flower bracelet by Hobé that coordinates with this set.
