Pearl, Gemstone Bead & Rondelle French 1950s Earrings by Louis Rousselet (Unsigned)
Louis Rousselet (Unsigned)
1 1/4" diameter
Very good (The coating on several pearls appears to have "bubbled", but I don't know if that was intended.)
These clip-back 1950s French earrings by Louis Rousselet feature faux pearls in various sizes, with accents of ruby, sapphire, emerald and amethyst blown glass leaves and rhinestone rondelles. Though unsigned, these earrings match a signed necklace and earrings set that I have moved from my personal collection to offer for sale. The ear clips are another clue to the maker. Louis Rousselet was the premier faux pearl and bead maker in the first half of the 20th century. These earrings are a beautiful example of his work.
