This is a hobe marked demi parure featuring a single strand of white moon-glow beads , enameling, and rhinestone spacers all set in gold plated findings. There are matching clip style earrings to complete this set.

Also included is the original box from Johnston's House of Gifts, Daytona Beach, Florida. The box shows light wear.......But I love it when people store their jewelry in their gift boxes.......Everything stays in such great condition!

I have read that Hobe used an exclusive 22K electro-plating process. Their gold plating is exceptional. Please remember Hobe jewelry was only sold in expensive stores and is of the highest designer quality. You can see the fine hand wired-on construction on the backs of the earrings. A custom also used by Miriam Haskell and several other top quality jewelry companies.

MARKS: Signed Hobe' with no copyright symbol...so this is an early set.

ERA: early 1950's jewelry.

SIZE: The necklace is 12” long extending to 14-1/2” long. The earrings are 1-1/4” across.

CONDITION: Both the necklace and earrings are in very good pre-owned condition. Clean and ready to wear.

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.
