How sweet it is! An absolutely amazing experience awaits upon fastening the clasp of this stupendous '60s vintage mesh five bow beauty. A cable of aurora borealis rhinestone lined mesh surrounds your neck in sinewy splendor as five strategically placed mesh bows grace the décolletage. Each bow is set with a baguette ab rhinestone and a lush pompom of wired aurora borealis crystals. Luxurious golden foxtail fringe tipped with ab crystals cascades. We have not seen a finer example of a necklace featuring mesh bow work. It is incredible in every way. From the intricate fine woven mesh to the sparkling aurora borealis rhinestones, crystal clusters and liquid foxtail fringe -- everything is done top shelf. Although not signed, Hobe did much mesh work featuring bows. With this in mind, in conjunction with premium workmanship, we are comfortable presenting the necklace as an unsigned piece by this maker.
The necklace is a fixed approximate 15 inches with hinged, rhinestone set push box clasp. Decorative bow portion spans about 6 inches with center bow dropping about 3 inches. Bows are graduated with two smaller at sides and three larger in center. Maximum profile or thickness is approximately 5/8 inch. Do keep in mind that these bow are formed (looped) rather than flat. The overall design of the necklace emphasizes dimension, detail and drama. Crystals are about 6 millimeters; chaton rhinestones, about 3 millimeters. Weight of the necklace is a generous, approximate 100 grams.
