Mid Century Cuff Bracelet by Hobe, Rhinestones on Gold Metal Mesh

Rhinestones on gold metal mesh cuff bracelet by Hobe, 

This one is a real showstopper. Wide gold metal mesh cuff bracelet with diagonal rows of rhinestones. Rhinestones are set on top of the mesh adding a real dimensional feel. So mid century and so contemporary at the same time. Hobe has always been my personal favorite in costume jewelry due to their quality and imaginative designs. Hobe rarely looks dated as this bracelet proves. JB55
