Dripping with full clusters of beads Hobé's bib caresses the décolletage with dazzling color. The necklace begins with a chain and double chains of aqua chaton rhinestones. Suspended in graduated lengths are bundles of beads -- faceted rounds and pyramids and free forms -- some silvery filigree or leaf capped. Colors (our subjective assessment) include lilac, cloud blue, cornflower blue, and subtle iridescent purple. The lowest hanging beads remind us of eggplants, crowned with silvery striated leafy caps. Where some skimp on substance, Hobé heaps it on. The barons of beads and brilliants, bar none.

The necklace is adjustable to about 14 1/2 inches with hook closure. The seventeen dangling clusters span approximately 8 inches with the longest dangling to about 2 1/4 inches. Beads are approximately 10, 11, and 13 millimeters; rhinestones, 4 millimeters. Weight of the necklace is a hefty 98.3 grams.

Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All dangles and beads present. No chips, nicks, cracks or breaks to beads. All dangle freely on loops and chains. Rhinestones intact, retaining color and sparkle. No missing of dead stones. All soldering secure. Silver tone finish intact with admirable, age commensurate patina. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.

Reverse of double rhinestone chain section signed within an oval cartouche: "Hobé" with copyright symbol over the "o". Circa 1950s.

A feast for your eyes. Break out the bib. Hosted by Hobé. Catered at Cody's.
