Brief history Hobe jewelry has been in business since the late 1800s, rich in jewelry history and it seems to be a family tradition. The jewelry items they created in the early years were of museum antiques and quality even though it was costume jewelry. The jewelry they created was considered good enough for queens. The original company was founded by William Hobe' in 1927. This beautiful Bracelet is a wonderful example of that fine craftsmanship with mark dating it circa 50’s
