Though I love silver and the gallery here more than reflects the preference, I cannot stay away from beautiful, old jewelry even when they are made of other materials.

This Joseff set is elegantly simple and simply elegant---and oh so wearable. It is done in the semi matte finish referred to as Russian gold. This finish is the one for which Joseff is known. The brooch is signed Joseff, an early signature later changed to Joseff of Hollywood. I believe this is a later set produced when the company reissued some early pieces. The brooch is 4 7/8" long, 3" wide. The clip earrings are 2 1/4" long and 1 3/4" wide. The brooch has the Joseff signature.

This is a well-known and hard-to-find set in very good condition. It is shown on page 353 of Julia Carroll's book, Collecting Costume Jewelry 202. She feels that the set can be attributed to Hobe because a signed necklace was shown on line that matched exactly. However, this set is not marked, and I am not comfortable attributing unmarked vintage. So - we'll let it stand on its own merits which are considerable.

First of all, the set is big - the larger of the figured pieces are 2" x 1 3/4...
