This is an outstanding Hobe Demi Parure Necklace and Earring Set, with the Original Tag.
This set includes a double strand necklace with a multicolor rhinestone clasp and a pair of clip earrings that match the necklace clasp.
The faceted glass necklace beads are individually knotted and have fantastic reflection and sparkle. The japanned box clasp is set with richly colored rhinestones in orange, yellow and a very pale greenish white. The clasp opens from either or both sides. The earrings are constructed with the same japanned `snowflake' shaped base and they are also set with matching rhinestones.
The necklace measures about 23 1/2" long, and the earrings are 1 1/8" across. The earrings are not marked and the mark on the necklace is Hobe' with the copyright symbol, dating the set between 1958 and 1983. The black and gold hang tag has Hobe' on one side and "Jewels of Legendary Splendor" on the other.
Condition: little to no wear; the clasp and earring clips work well; the finish on the beads is excellent.
This is a beautiful necklace with fabulous, warm and rich colors. It is a unique beauty and our pictures just don't do it justice. This is one that looks better in person!
