One of the most extravagant Hobe wrap bracelet and earrings sets we've seen. Wonderfully wide and luxuriously loaded with a variety of beads and rhinestones to please the most discriminating collector. Overall colors presentation is olivine, Persian turquoise, white and gold with aurora borealis rhinestone roundelles and in the bracelet, four clear rhinestone stabilizer bars. Juliet capped white beads with swirls / stipples of gold akin to gold fluss treatments share the stage with marbled olivine beads. Intermittent roundelles alternate with aurora borealis rhinestones or faux Persian turquoise beads. Full, multi bead pom poms at each end supply movement and additional coverage. Matching gold tone, button style clip earrings compliment the bracelet, san pom poms. It's easy to see why Hobe has supplied jewelry for such New York reviews as the Ziegfeld Follies to Hollywood mega movies. Theatrical and thoroughly entertaining, Hobe's jewels have captured our hearts.
The set includes the memory wire wrap bracelet. Inside circumference ranges from a very approximate 5 inches to 6 1/2 inches. We believe this is the ideal fluctuation range although the bracelet will accommodate larger wrists. When front stabilizer bars are placed end to end the width of the bracelet is 2 1/4 inches. It measures at back about 1 inch. Vast majority of beads are approximately 8 millimeters. Earrings are about 1 1/4 inches across with a 1/2 inch profile or height. Center earring olivine beads are approximately 11 millimeters. Weight of the bracelet and earrings demi is about 86 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All rhinestones intact and brilliant. No dark, cloudy or dead stones. All beads intact, retaining colors and treatments. Gold tone finishes intact, fronts and backs. All wiring secure. Bracelet retains shape and tight memory with no stretch out. Front and side stabilizer bars maintain alignment / shape. Earring clips, with signature Hobe roller balls, strong and secure. Extremely clean. Excellent vintage.
Each original earring clip is signed within a rectangular cartouche: "Hobe'". Although the bracelet is not signed it is a definite part of the demi. The set dates to the 1950s-1960s.
