Sale This listing is for a gorgeous pair of Hobe Clip Earrings with Art Glass Heart Shape Mayorka Petals designed by Julio Marsella for Hobe'. There are 3 hearts all secured with beautiful gold plated decorative prongs all around the hearts. Two of the hearts are closer in size, one being a luscious pink and the other is a creamier white with grey to brownish striations . The smaller hearts are pure white, and all of them have some carving on the glass. In the middle where they all connect, there are two teardrop shaped iridescent rhinestones, plus two more little ones at the center of the other two hearts at the top. Measuring these two ways with one way being kind of on a diagonal, they are app. 1 3/8" x 1 14" and they are in excellent condition. I am seeing that I should have cleaned the back a little better so you could see how nice they are. The setting is a quality gold plating of some kind and all the pearls have this protective backing on them. On both earrings, there are two little plastic rolling like cylinders where they clip to your ear, perhaps for more comfort. I just never see these Mayorka Petals except online, and these came from a KY Estate of a distant relative by marriage. The mom had drawers and boxes full of quality gold and silver jewelry which the daughters divided, and I had mostly the first pick on her costume jewelry.
On page 208 of the book "Estate Jewelry" by Diana Cinamon, you can see a Hobe bracelet and brooch that used these Mayorka petals. These are gorgeous and you will not be disappointed to add them to your collection of Vintage Jewelry. These are from the 1950's.
