The Hargo company produced jewelry in New York in the 1950s - 1960s. Well known for it's genies, dragons, oriental and enamel work, the company produced many other fantasy and figural pieces, often incorporating rhinestones, cabochons, and faux pearls.
Pictured is a bronze tone leafy fern frond. It's spears are alternately cup set with clear rhinestone chatons and tiny faux seed pearls. Between each spear is a roped loop while the long center vein / stem features tiny metal beading. The perfect balance of pearlescent purity and diamante dash in a bronzed finish setting.
