1950s Hobe Wide Mesh Cuff, Rhinestones1950s Hobe Wide Mesh Cuff, Rhinestones1950s Hobe Wide Mesh Cuff, Rhinestones1950s Hobe Wide Mesh Cuff, Rhinestones

This one is a real showstopper. Wide gold metal mesh cuff bracelet with diagonal rows of rhinestones. Rhinestones are set on top of the mesh adding a real dimensional feel. So mid century and so contemporary at the same time. Hobe has always been my personal favorite in costume jewelry due to their quality and imaginative designs. Hobe rarely looks dated as this bracelet proves.
Jacques Hobe, a master craftsman a jeweler to the French court, founded the Hobe (Hobe') Company in 1887 in Paris. His grandson William Hobe immigrated to New York City in the mid 1920s and established Hobe et Cie, a family business producing high quality costume jewelry.

Florence Ziegfeld commissioned Hobe to make stage jewelry for the Ziegfeld Follies leading to Hobe’s long association with the film industry. In fact, many believe the term costume jewlery was coined due to this association. By the 1940s, Hobe jewelry was billed as “Jewels of Legendary Splendor” and advertised in magazines modeled by Hollywood’s movie stars such as Bette Davis and Carole Lombard. The family stopped producing jewelry in the 1990s, but different company still produces jewelry today under the Hobe name.Wide gold metal mesh cuff bracelet with diagonal rows of rhinestones.
