Hobé Necklace Bib Aqua Venetian Foil Glass Beads Pearls Rondelles Green Crystals Vintage 1950s, offered by bohemiantrading.

Hobé designed the most elegant jewelry, and this is a wonderful example. This statement making bib necklace has five strands of engraved chains. An arrangement of clear rhinestone rondelles, balls, capped faux pearls, green bicone crystals, and aqua silver foiled Venetian glass beads creates a remarkable combination. The colors are deep and rich, and the necklace has just the right amount of sparkle. The strands are held together by gold colored end bars marked Hobé in a rectangle on the reverse. A cluster of beads and rondelles dangle at the back of the necklace, so it is beautiful when viewed from both sides.

The workmanship is amazing on this piece, considering the number of elements. All components are in good vintage condition with some expected wear. The antiqued chain shows variations in toning. Its bronze tone contrasts with the gold plated findings. There are a few tiny knocks on the olivine crystals visible on close inspection. The Venetian foil glass is in excellent condition. C. 1950’s-1960’s (mark does not match any dated marks available in my research). Altogether a sumptuous statement bib from one of Hollywood’s favorite costume jewelry designers.

SIZE: The shortest strand is approx. 16-3/4” from the end of the hook clasp to the second link on the dangle. The dangle is about 3" long. The bib drapes about 5” at the center depending on how it is fastened. For scale comparison, the Venetain beads are approx. 3/4"L x 1/2"W.

This item will be presented in an embroidered silk pouch and gift boxed
