Likely from the late 1940s early 1950s, this is a lovely example of Hobe's filigree-style jewelry. Designed in a leaf motif with polished gold swirls in the center with crystal and light blue open back rhinestones all around the edge. Very pretty and delicate piece, very good vintage condition. Signed on the back of the piece.
Size: 2.25 x 1.5 inches
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.
