Put a smile on your face with this day brightening demi from Hobe. Yellow (with perhaps a tinge of orange) molded glass sunflower beads are grouped in stations of six blossoms (19 stations in all) interspersed with faceted diamond shaped beads and black glass bead spacers in the 58 inch single strand rope style necklace. The necklace will comfortably double. Matching button style clip earrings are arranged with seven blossoms on a goldtone filigree base. Hailing from the '50s or '60s the necklace and earring set is as fresh and vibrant as when created. The sun never sets on Hobe.
The set includes the single strand rope style necklace, shown coiled for photo shoot. It is approximately 58 inches long so if you choose, it can be easily doubled. It fastens via a goldtone spring ring clasp. Each of the six blossomed stations is about 1 1/4 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. Diamond shaped glass beads are approximately 12 millimeters x 9 millimeters. Earring are about 1 inch across with a 3/8 inch profile. Weight of the set is a generous approximate 120 grams.
Condition is excellent / pristine vintage. All components original and intact. All glass beads free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. Stringing appear to be very secure with no gaps, slack or overpull. Flower blossoms remain securely wired to earring filigree bases. A clear epoxy was also used for enhanced stability. It remains clear and adhesive. Earring clips strong and secure with pliable, clean roller balls, a signature feature on Hobe earring clips. No damage / no repairs. The demi is clean and crisp and ready to wear.
Each original earring clip is signed "Hobe'". Although the necklace is not signed, it is a definite part of the set.
