These unusual glass beads are faceted and double sided. One side has an aurora borealis finish and the other is without, resulting in an incredible sparkling strand of pale blue and crystal beads that will catch the light and shine. The hook clasp is signed Hobe and the whole strand is strung on a fine silver chain. This is the necklace that you will wear often.
Size: 17 inches; Condition: Very Good; Circa: 1960s
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.
