Vintage SIGNED Brooch HOBE HUGE extravagant Chandelier rhinestone purple tassels


This signed HOBE chandelier brooch is not only HUGE ( 3" x 3") but it is one I have never seen another of. This has ribbons of teeny tiny brilliant rhinestones that run thru these large Marquise GLASS PURPLE rhinestones that are STUNNING!!! The chandelier drops actually move when you do and they have matching marquise stones at the bottom. All the purple stones are prong set and just the most beautiful shade of purple. I have had many Hobe pieces before and this one is really one of the nicest I have seen. The signature is on the back ( see photo). This is made very much like another large costume jewelry manufacturer that made the ribbon effect in rhinestones which really goes to show that many designs were copied and embellished upon. This is made in many dimensions so it really has quite an impact when it is against most any color material. This is heavy and well made. IF you take a magnifying glass to it you will see that one rhinestone is a little duller but since it is the one of the tiniest of them all and on the end, I doubt it ever even be noticed. Because the stones are on an arch some don't seem to fit at the same level as others. This was the way I got it and unless you really look hard, it doesn't show up . The back has lightened a bit ( the gold color). When you wear this it is one of the most magnificent pieces you will find made by Hobe and it will definitely IMPRESS!!! SOld as found.
