Small glass round cream-colored pearls surrounding a large glass baroque pearl in the same tone form these 1950s French earrings with clip-backs. Though these earrings are unsigned, the construction (especially the clip-back mechanism) and materials are consistent with those used by Louis Rousselet.

Sterling silver set with gemstone-colored glass stones in a crescent shape make these 1940s clip-back earrings by DeRosa very versatile. The colored stones are graduated in size and enhanced with an inner ring of diamanté. Moreover, the faux diamond, emerald, amethyst, ruby, emerald, sapphire and topaz form the word dearest, making these earrings acrostic (i.e., the initials of the stones form a word or name). This type of sentimental jewelry was very popular in the 19th century Victorian era, a style that inspired some 1940s jewelry designers. DeRosa pieces are always exceptionally well-made and hard to find.
