This dazzling vintage necklace and earring set from the inimitable Hobé is gorgeous. This necklace features a motif of repeating gold-colored panels with applied conical settings containing iridescent, bicone, reddish-violet AB beads and wire-wrapped teardrop-shaped faux pearls in an alternating pattern.
Since its inception in 1927, the company has continually produced brilliantly unique and high-quality jewelry, all of which increases in value and collectability yearly.
A truly remarkable work of artisanal craftsmanship, the top of the necklace is an articulated, rigid chain while each of the small, applied settings has a fluted or cross-hatched finish.
Curb chains emanate from each side; one of these culminates in a simple hook, allowing the necklace to be adjusted to the wearer's desired length.
The longer chain features a small gold-colored orb at the end stamped with a delicate paisley pattern.
The earrings replicate the necklace's motif simply and beautifully. Each piece features three gold-colored panels with three applied conical settings with an inserted bicone, AB bead and wire-wrapped teardrop-shaped faux pearl.
The reverse of each earring is stamped with the Hobé and feature a hinged clip with attached rubber cylinder for added comfort.
Excluding a small number of immaterial flea-bite scratches, the set is in remarkable condition, gleaming with vintage elegance.
Give it as a wonderfully unique gift this holiday season or keep it in your own private collection.
