Quickview Vintage Earrings, 1950s Jewelry, Louis Rousselet JewelryClusters of faux pearls with blown glass flowers and leaves form these 1950s French ear clips. The design and style of the beads remind me of the work of Louis Rousselet, although the earring backs are not typical of his work. However, the findings I'm familiar with would have been too small for this creation. Please note that although these earrings are not mirror images, the lack of symmetry does not detract from their lovely appearance. What a great choice for a bride!USD$250.00
Quickview Vintage Bracelets, 1920s Jewelry, 1930s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThis brown marbeled Bakelite Art Deco bangle bracelet with its six yellow dots is a charming example of the era. The swirls of color are on the outside and inside. This piece, which is from my personal collection, slips over the hand as the bracelet doesn't open.USD$425.00
Quickview Vintage Necklaces, 1930s Jewelry, Jakob Bengel JewelryLapis glass beads separated by decorative chrome links and a center Galalith(?) bead with chrome end caps form this German Machine Age necklace. The same piece in other colors has been attributed to Bengel by a British expert. This necklace closes with a spring-ring clasp, which may be a replacement (it is brass in color). The center bead has a minor flaw that probably occurred during manufacture. This small imperfection does not detract from the beauty or wearability of this necklace.
