Hope Chest was founded in Minneapolis in the early 1960s. The company relocated to New Jersey in 1963. In business for only a few years, premium examples of their work are rare. The set offered is one such example. Finely textured, satin finished goldtone three and four leaf clovers with shiny stems are set with exquisite aurora borealis marquise and pear shaped rhinestones within shiny goldtone frameworks. Round brilliants center each clover. These are the ab stones that have that wonderful cognac and merlot color play with bursts of bronze. Lucky for us, they remain in pristine vintage condition with all their ab magic intact.
The demi includes the four leaf clover brooch, at approximately 2 1/8 inches x 2 inches with a 3/8 inch profile and the matching clip earrings, at about 1 1/4 inches across. Weight of the set is approximately 44 grams.
Condition is excellent / pristine vintage. All components original and intact. All ab rhinestones retain brilliance and color play. Magnificent examples of the aurora borealis rhinestone. All goldtone finishes intact, front and back. Pin shaft straight with strong and secure mechanism. Earring clips strong and secure. No damage / no repairs. Pristine. Near mint.
All pieces signed. The brooch on it's reverse within an oblong cartouche: "HOPE CHEST". Each original earring clip: "HOPE-CHEST".
Hope with a little luck fills your chest.
