A picture says a 1000 words, well that is not nearly enough for this magnificent vintage set. This is a very old demi consisting of a very heavily encrusted necklace. The necklace has clear glass beads (rods) in each oval along with filigree findings on each end, then there are black and jade green beads, these look like seeds from a fruit, next to these are black seed bead ovals with yet more filigree findings. Each segment is nice and heavy they are in the shape of oval melons as in fruit, although they are not fruit themselves just the shape.
The necklace is just sensational in all my years of collection I have not come across another Hobe like this.
Measures 16 3/ 4 inches long with adjustable hook, the matching earrings measure 1 inch round and quite chunky.
This is jaw dropping spectacular, pass this one down to the next generation it is that special.
You will not be disappointed, so go ahead and treat yourself to something you will love to put on every day
