A sterling silver four-loop bow forms the foundation of the brooch in this 1940s set by Hobé. Each loop is embellished with layers of leaves and buds. The focal point is the flower that sits on top of the bow. Its aquamarine center forms a vertical line with two additional round aquamarine-glass stones that adorn the piece. Each ear clip is a flower with aquamarine center, topped with two vertical, textured leaves. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. This set looks great with Hobé’s Aquamarine & Sterling Flower Bracelet – scroll down to see it.
