Beautiful white glass earrings, often called milk glass. Molded glass beads surround a center white glass cabachon. Small faux pearls complete the look in a silver metal setting.  

Jacques Hobe', a master craftsman a jeweler to the French court, founded the Hobe Company in 1887 in Paris. His grandson William Hobe immigrated to New York City in the mid 1920s and established Hobe et Cie, a family business producing high quality costume jewelry.

Florence Ziegfeld commissioned Hobe to make stage jewelry for the Ziegfeld Follies leading to Hobe’s long association with the film industry. By the 1940s, Hobe jewelry was billed as “Jewels of Legendary Splendor" and advertised in magazines modeled by Hollywood’s movie stars such as Bette Davis and Carole Lombard. The family stopped producing jewelry in the 1990s, but a Hobe company still produces jewelry today.
