Simply splendiferous earrings produced by Hobe are truly fascinating.
A magnificent combination of white and clear givre marquis or wide navette rhinestones on all three layers at tips of golden rods are interspersed with clear pastel stones that are also at the tips of various sized rods. When turned or tilted at different angles, three semi hidden rhinestones seem to come out from behind. The base is composed of three smoke grey stones with a clear pastel chaton at either end forming a chevron pattern with a clear & white givre stone in the center. All stones are brilliant and in tip top vintage condition. You won’t be disappointed.
Clip on earrings hug the ear, rather than dangling from the lobe. This looks extraordinary especially when worn with an upswept hair do. They are much prettier in person.
Measures 2-1/2” L x 1” W. When laid flat, they have a depth of 3/4". Backs have the Hobe signature within a raised oval cartouche.
Vintage Hobe is known for its beauty, design and workmanship and was sold in the finer stores. The Ziegfeld Follies had many of its stars outfitted with Hobe jewelry. Back in the day, many movie stars could be seen wearing Hobe.
