Description:
Details: This vintage gold-tone necklace with iridescent orange-colored cabochons and peridot-green rhinestones is signed Hobe.

Fitted with an an adjustable clasp, the necklace measures between approx. 13.5" and 16.5".

HobŽ Cie was founded in 1887 by goldsmith Jacques HobŽ, but when costume-jewelry collectors think of HobŽ, they picture the tasselled and beaded necklaces made by JacquesÕ son, William, who established an American offshoot of the company in 1927. That put HobŽ at the beginning of the American costume-jewelry boom between the two world wars In fact, some scholars believe that HobŽ actually had a hand in the phrase Òcostume jewelryÓ itself. After the younger HobŽ landed in New York, but before he started his company, one of the his first assignments was to make costumes and jewelry for the "Ziegfeld Follies." According to some historians, Florenz Ziegfeld described the jewelry that accompanied HobŽÕs costumes as costume jewelry. HobŽÕs showbiz origins served the company well. By the 1940s and Õ50s, Hollywood stars such as Bette Davis and Ava Gardner were wearing HobŽ. Especially prized today are the floral pins of that era, which featured tight clusters of vermeil petals. Earlier HobŽ pieces that remain popular with collectors include filigreed bracelets and pins, some of which featured Victorian-style portraits or Japanese netsuke-like figures as focal points.
Condition / Notes: This vintage costume jewelry is intact and shows nicely with mild signs of age and wear.
