Vintage 1960's Hobe Black Diamond Rhinestones Huge Crystals Drop Necklace Earrings Set.
This is an incredible necklace comprised of reflective settings....prong set with large round faceted black diamond colored (black with a very smoky grey hue) rhinestones and one scintillating clear crystal rhinestone at the center.....suspending both black diamond and clear crystal rhinestones dripping below. The large rhinestones are embellished with the addition of small colorless rhinestones set on a diagonal in the reflective settings. Snake neck chain with link extension chain for adjustment and j-hook closure. Matching double drop earrings are clip on style and identical in size to the double drops in the necklace. Gold tone finish setting.
Necklace is signed Hobe in an oval cartouche on the back. Earrings are signed on the back of both clips.
Necklace measures 16 inches long from the tip of the j-hook to the ball on the end of extension chain with a 1-5/8 inch drop at the center. Earrings measure 1-5/8 inches long by 3/4 inch wide. The reflective settings that hold the stones are all identical in size and measure 3/4 inch in diameter.
*There is finish wear to the snake neck chain and extender chain. Slight finish loss to the left side of the necklace where it attaches to the neck chain. Some of the smaller rhinestones are not quite as clear as they were originally. See last photo.* Having said...vintage condition is otherwise very good. Spectacular!
