HOBÉ costume jewelry is among the finest in quality and design.
The Hobé name dates well back to the 1880’s, the family originally from Paris, Hobé et Cie, was founded by Jacques Hobé around 1887. 
The idea being to create jewelry for the middle class & upper classes, using fine jewelry techniques, but using non-precious materials to make jewelry affordable.
Son, Wm. Hobé started the American company, around 1915 and was out of Mt. Vernon, NY.  
In its heyday, Hobé had showrooms across the country, including two in L.A.
Hobé jewelry was very popular with its classic designs.
They have used many different marks over the years.
  
The Hobé mark was first used January, 1926.
If you put your cursor over the pictures shown at the left there is more information.

Hobé jewelry was sought after by many movie stars, used in movie productions and used by Florence Ziegfield for the Ziegfield Follies. William Hobé, a great designer, worked with Edith Head on many movies. Celebrity patronage added greatly to the fame of Hobé and their rhinestone jewelry in the 1950's.

James Hobé, grandson of William, ran the company until around 2000, at which time the company was sold.
Hobé jewelry is still in production today, using the name, but no longer owned by Hobé. The Hobé jewelry made today is quite different.
