These were a favorite of my Grandmother's extensive collection of jewelry! Great condition from a nonsmokers home. Hobé Cie was founded in 1887 in Paris by goldsmith Jacques Hobé, when costume-jewelry. Collectors think of Hobé, they picture the tasselled and beaded necklaces.
Made by Jacques' son, William. William Hobé was the son of a master goldsmith.And it's fair to say like father, like son. Becoming a master jeweler himself, William opened his own company "Hobé Cie" in America to produce extravagant costumes and jewelry. Williams first commission in the US came in the mid-1920s from Florence Ziegfeld where he produced costumes and costume jewelry for Broadway productions.
William's success with Ziegfeld opened the doors to many other Hollywood theater companies and film studios. In the panorama of American costume jewelry manufacturers, Hobé is known as a producer of luxury items - jewelry with an antique flavor, rich with extremely brilliant crystals connected by filigreed motifs, and wrought with the skill and proficiency of a master craftsman. During the forties, Hobé jewels were promoted by the most beloved stars with the catchy slogan Jewels of Legendary Splendor. Apart from the jewelry designed by.Who worked for the company from the 1930s to the 70s, all Hobé pieces were designed by members of the Hobé family. Hobé jewelry produced from 1957 to 1966 sometimes includes a date of manufacture. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer you.
