Here is a Glorious Strand of Vintage Rose Quartz and Aventurine Beads from Hobé's Couturier Collection. Suspended from the strand is a Beautiful, Large Aventurine Pendant, carved on both sides with a fruit motif. The necklace comes with its original tag as described below. The necklace clasp is signed with the metal content, also described below. Condition is Excellent. Examination with a jeweler's loupe revealed a very small chip in one bead, not noticeable all when worn. The spots in the photos are natural inclusions in the quartz beads. These gorgeous natural beads and carved pendant are sure to be noticed and admired by everyone!
About Hobé Jewelry: Hobé produced very high quality jewelry for upscale stores, often using semi-precious stones, as in this necklace. Hobé jewelry was used in showgirl costumes in the Ziegfeld Follies (Hobé supplied many of the costumes themselves - this was the founder's original business in the US). Florence Ziegfeld (who founded the Ziegfeld Follies) was probably the first person to use the term "costume jewelry." Hobé jewelry was used in many Hollywood movies.
