talkingfashion: The name Hobe is the family name of a business starting in Paris, France in 1887 by Jacques Hobe who was regarded as a master goldsmith recognized throughout Europe as a producer of fine jewelry. One of his son??s, William Hobe, while still in France, was a representative for a German company selling theatrical costumes. He came to the U.S. and sold costumes to Florence Ziegfeld of the Ziegfeld Follies with a request by Ziegfeld to also create inexpensive but real looking jewelry to go along with the showgirls costumes. In 1930, William Hobe created the company, Hobe Cie Ltd. NY producing Hobe costume jewelry.
The Hobe jewelry has been of excellent and elegant designs with high quality stones embellishing superior sterling silver, platinum and gold plated metalwork. The Hobe jewelry has been excellent in workmanship especially on its reproductions of antique jewelry such as the replicas of the jewelry of the European courts which was made to last. During the 1950's, Hobe designed and produced jewelry for movies in Hollywood and also for the movie stars personal collections. Hobe jewelry was said to be the jewelry of choice in Hollywood, for it was favored by many producers and movie stars, and was designed to compliment the costumes of actresses in movies. The jewelry was also used by fashion models in advertising promotions. One of the 1940s slogans in a Hobe advertisement was "jewels of legendary splendor". Hobe jewelry advertisements claimed that their jewelry was handmade using platinum, gold or sterling metal. It has been said that Hobe jewelry is unmatched in quality. The Hobe Company has been considered one of the very best of costume jewelry manufacturers in America. Mark: "Hobe with a dash above the e" on an oval plaque and "Hobe STERLING 14K with a copyright symbol" in a triangle used in 1958. The Hobe pieces produced between 1935 and 1955 are highly collectible.
