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.
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. These earrings would make a lovely accessory for daytime, evening or bridal/wedding/prom wear.
These classy Hattie Carnegie 1950s earrings each feature a brown topaz rhinestone that dangles from a cluster of brown topaz beads with citrine accents. The gold-tone setting is richly textured. These earrings are clip-backs.
Faceted crystal beads dangle from filigree settings in these 1920s Art Deco earrings. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings coordinate well with any of my Art Deco necklaces with clear crystals only or with a combination of clear and colored crystals. Scroll down to see a selection of necklaces and brooches to wear with these earrings.
A cluster of sapphire, onyx, citrine and chartreuse glass beads form these clip-back earrings by Hattie Carnegie. This vibrant and unique 1950s color combination is set in gold-tone metal. These colorful earrings are a versatile addition to any jewelry wardrobe. They remind me of colors worn in the early episodes of Mad Men.
