This vintage rhinestone & crystal necklace and earring set by Hobe features a double sided pendant on a long art deco styled chain. No need to worry about the pendant flipping over and showing the wrong side! The pendant and matching earrings have a nouveau shell shaped filigree setting and art deco shaped red and diamanté rhinestone design. Silver and red iridescent diamond shaped glass beads dangle from both the pendant and the earrings. While I am in love with the pendant and earrings I find the chain the most interesting and beautiful. It features more art deco flair with long oval links donating the geometric shaped beads alternating between round o-link chain. Truly a work of art and certainly an older collectible Hobe set! Long pendant necklaces are so in style right now and no one will have one like yours!
Condition: Excellent condition. No missing rhinestones. Just hint of wear to the gold filigree setting primarily on the backs or very edges of the earrings. If you get out a loupe you might find a tiny flea bite in the crystals here or there but you have to hunt. The necklace displays beautifully as worn! The earrings hold nicely but are not uncomfortable (must be those signature roll clips!)
Measurements: Chain is 25 1/2” long and the pendant drop is 2 1/4”. Earrings are just shy of 2” and 1” wide.
Marks: Hobe on earring backs
Age: Estimate 1930/40’s
