Beautiful and substantial set, all signed Hobe. Hobe used such interesting beads and this set is a great example. Faceted jet black, red infused with black and metallic silver make up this five strand necklace and climber clip earrings for a stunning result. White blouse, black dress...this would be the focal point of any outfit. Fabulous set!
Size: Necklace: 16 plus 4 inch extender, Clip Earrings: 1.25 inches; Condition: Very Good; Circa: 1950s
Originating in Paris in 1887 by Jacques Hobe, the Hobe jewelry company has an outstanding reputation for fine costume pieces. Jacques' son, William, is credited with bringing the brand to the United States and being a master craftsman himself. A serious student of period design, William was able to translate historical designs to modern settings and also created many set designs for the motion pictures. The company closed in 1995.
