HISTORY: The company was founded by Jacques Hobe, in 1883 in France.
After WW-ll William Hobe', the son, moved the company to the U.S.A.
In California he made jewelry for the Ziegfeld Follies, and catered to the Hollywood crowd.
Hobe jewelry is still being made, but has nothing to do with the original family.
Hobe provided jewelry to high end department stores and expensive boutiques.
It was the "darling" of Hollywood starlets in the 50's.
