Designer HOBÉ
1930s - Present

The name Hobé is well respected and sought after by many collectors of Costume and Fine Fashion Jewelry. Hobé Cie is a costume jewellery company that was founded by William Hobé in New York in the late 1800s. William Hobé had immigrated to the US from France, where his family had made fine jewellery for generations. Hobé jewellery was used in showgirl costumes in the Ziegfeld Follies. Hobé jewellery was also used in many Hollywood movies. Hobé produces very high quality and very high priced jewellery for upscale stores. The materials used for the costume jewellery are often semi-precious stones and their jewellery is highly collectable.

Rich in jewellery history and it seems to be a family tradition. The jewellery items they created in the early years were of museum antiques and quality even though they were Costume jewellery. They were considered good enough for Queen's. Hobe' quit manufacturing jewellery some time in 1992.
