This exceptional early Hobe brooch has everything that collectors look for with its beautiful palette of pink and purple stones linked by delicate filigree. A large purple stone anchors the center and is crowned by a trio of elongated cushion-cut stones. Smaller pink, purple, and clear stones fill out the shield-shaped piece.
It is constructed of gold-plated metal that has darkened to a lovely dark warm patina.
SIZE: 1-1/2" wide x 1-7/8" high
AGE: 1930's or 40's
CONDITION: very good vintage condition with signs of wear consistent with age and use. There is one clear rhinestone directly beneath the large purple stone that has a concoidal chip on the back that gives the stone a slightly foggy appearance.
