This spectacular early Hobe brooch features a gigantic unfoiled red rhinestone in the middle surrounded by numerous unfoiled rhinestones in the colors of red, blue, green, purple and golden yellow. The stones are all set into an ornate and highly decorative "Russian gold" colored setting.
On the back of the brooch is a security clasp for use while wearing this as a brooch. Above that you will find a rather clever swiveling bail that drops down when not in use.
The pin / pendant measures 2 3/4 inches tall by 2 1/4 inches wide by a 1/2 of an inch front to back. The condition is excellent.
