The apparent today, a little theatrical style of the first half of the XX century opens the imagination: unfading Art Deco classic, with its color and figurative solutions to fit a casual shirt, and a simple sweater, and an evening dress with heels. And if, as an experiment, you want to feel the heroine in “Tender Is the Night,” a scatter of crystals will just be the way. Such theatrical allusions come not by chance, because the company’s founder, William Hobe, first revealed to the world his talent, when at the end of the 1920s Broadway impresario, Florenz Ziegfeld, ordered the inexpensive but high quality jewellery to suit for his show. Later, for a special sympathy from the producers, directors and actresses, Hobe was called “choice of Hollywood”.

The central part of the composition of this jewellery set of 1965 is a cameo, surrounded by crystals of marsh and cognac colors. A white haze cameo contrasts with brilliant multicolored crystals. Their color range goes well with gold base. A thin thread of metal on the back side of the pendant testifies to the high quality of manual work. Rich composition completes the double interlaced chain. Pendant opens into two halves, in which you can insert an image.
