Vintage 1950s Hobe Triple Strand Glass and Plastic Necklace w Rhinestone Clasp
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a lovely quality three strand necklace made by Hobé, featuring a combination of glass and plastic. The clasp is especially striking on this necklace, consisting of two round settings, each with an aventurine infused caramel coloured glass stone surrounded by two rows of prong set aurora borealis rhinestones. The strands are made up of iridescent glass beads, bronzed glass faceted beads, plastic pebble beads and brown plastic round beads. The clasp is stamped “Hobé”. Hobé was founded as a French company in 1887, but the American Hobé that we know was founded by the original founder’s son, William, in 1927.
Celebrities such as Bette Davis and Ava Gardner wore Hobé.
This necklace measures 17 1/2” across the top strand, including the clasp. It is in very good condition with no missing stones or wear.
As with all Hobé, this is a lovely quality necklace with great coloring, very easy to use.
