An absolutely stunning vintage parure by Hobé, and in superb condition. A complete boxed set of matching wrap bracelet, pendant locket and chain, and clip earrings, the suite features hand-carved shell cameos, claw-set in decorative gold-plated mounts, and surrounded with clusters of green rhinestones. Around these are claw-set rhinestones of golden brown, deep yellow, and tiny, clear rhinestones. The bracelet is a gold-plated mesh wrap-around bracelet, that will adjust to fit any size wrist up to 7.9 inches. The width of the mesh band is 0.8 inch. The clasp is set with a carved shell cameo and multi-colour rhinestones. To the other end of the bracelet are two rows of lime-green rhinestones, and a gorgeous fringe of braided gold-plated wire tassels. The pendant locket is stunning - beautifully decorated to back and front with an embossed design of berries and leaves, and mounted on the front, another hand-carved shell cameo, which is also surrounded with multi-colour rhinestones. The locket measures 1.6 inches by 1.25 inches, and is 0.5 inch deep front to back. The locket opens to reveal a brightly polished gold-plated interior. The pendant chain is a decorative double rope-twist. The chain measures 20 3/4 inches in length. The earrings again feature hand-carved, shell cameos, and multi-colour rhinestones. Each earring measures 1.25 inches by 1.1 inches, and the fittings are clips. The clips still have their clear plastic ear cushions in place. All four pieces in this parure are signed Hobé. Condition of the entire suite is excellent, with all stones present and original. The parure comes in its original fitted box, lined with dark green velvet and cream silk, and the cream silk is signed with the Hobé logo. The exterior of the box is finished with an oak-grain, plasticized linen. The box is in super condition, with no obvious signs of wear.
