1950s Jewelry

This authentic 1950s jewelry features amazing art glass, decorative beads, imaginative color combinations, and textured metals. Single- and multi-strand necklaces, cluster earrings, pendant earrings, brooches, bracelets, and sets are included. You will find fabulous fakes – imitations of large-scale fine jewelry – as well as graceful and classic tailored pieces. Gold-tone was more popular than silver-tone in this decade, when clothes that emphasized the female figure were in vogue. Another significant characteristic of the 1950s, other than the ubiquitous simple strand of pearls, was the preference for all accessories – jewels, gloves, handbags, shoes, and hats – to be color coordinated.

    Gold Pineapple Bead Necklace with Fringe

    Golden & Brown Topaz & Gold Clover Earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,
    These clover earrings by Schiaparelli have three faceted, shield-cut topaz-glass stones – two golden and one brown – with citrine accents. The exotic three-sided shape of the large stones enhances the three-leaf clover design in gold-tone metal. These details and the elaborate construction of the earring backs exemplify this maker’s ingenuity and quality. This color combination – which is perfect for those who look best in warm colors – can be found in other Schiaparelli pieces.

    This golden topaz brooch has large, faceted deep-yellow glass stones (sometimes referred to as coffin-shaped), with the largest shooting out at various angles. They form the bottom layer of this dazzling 1950s brooch by Miriam Haskell. A large citrine-glass stone in the center is surrounded by silver-coated diamanté to add to the sparkle.

    Golden Topaz, Green Tourmaline & Diamanté Christian Dior Earrings

    , ,
    These Christian Dior earrings feature textured, gold-plated ropes intertwined with faceted golden-topaz and green- tourmaline glass stones and AB diamanté. (Swarovski, in collaboration with Dior, invented aurora borealis – a coating that adds iridescence to stones.) The color combination and elaborate hook-and-eye construction of these 1950s ear clips are worthy of the maker’s name. Elegant, classic, and perfect for a woman who looks best in warm colors. These earrings looked amazing when they walked the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019.

    Green Bead 2-Strand French Necklace

    , ,
    This green glass bead necklace is just gorgeous! Two strands of graduated beads in a soft-green with swirls of color form this French 1950s jewel. I think it was made by Louis Rousselet. (As you may know, few of his pieces were signed directly on the jewelry – instead, a paper hang tag was used.) The clasp, which is the type he typically used, is topped with his well-known button-shaped bead. This necklace from my personal collection was recently professionally restrung. A timeless addition to your jewelry wardrobe.

    Jade Art Glass, Gemstone & Pearl Brooch & Earrings Set by Hobé

    , , ,
    This gemstone brooch and earrings set has large jade-art-glass nuggets set in gold-tone metal as its focal point. The oval-shaped brooch has two nuggets surrounded by faux pearls and glass stones in amethyst, sapphire, and citrine. These embellishments are in various shapes and sizes. An overlay of gold-plated filigree flowers with tiny sapphire centers complete the brooch. It closes with a roll-over safety clap. The ear clips each have one jade nugget with a semi-circle of the same colorful stones. The earrings face each other, so they will frame your face to perfection. The combination of elements and the complexity of design make this set very special. It’s a great example of Hobé’s ’50s Glam style and suits today’s preference for statement jewelry. Wear the pieces together or separately, to create different looks.

    Jade Bead Dangling Earrings by Louis Rousselet

    These jade bead earrings feature clusters of vibrant dark-apple-green-glass barrels cascading from French ear clips. Some of the beads have striations. Though unsigned, these delightful 1950s creations feature the same style of ear clip typically used by Louis Rousselet. What’s more significant is the way the earrings are constructed: on the backs we see the flower-shaped links to which the beads are wired, a unique trait of this maker’s work. (Note that he typically signed his pieces with only a paper hang tag.) These playful and unusual earrings are perfect for any occasion.

    Jade Bead, Pearl & Diamanté Dangle Brooch

    , ,
    This 1950s dangle brooch by Hattie Carnegie is spectacular! Large, opulent, and three-dimensional, it certainly makes a statement. At the top is an elaborate, three-inch-wide bow set with small round and large marquise-shaped diamanté. From it falls a cascade of multiple layers of jade-green-glass beads, faux pearls, and round, pear-shaped, and marquise-shaped diamanté. All of the stones are faceted and bright. The setting is rhodium-plated metal with a roll-over safety clasp. Wear this substantial jewel on a lapel, sash, or purse, or as a pendant. The last photo shows it as the centerpiece on a white-gold-and-diamond chain. (This necklace is not included.) This amazingly-detailed piece is not for the faint-hearted, but it’s guaranteed to get you noticed!

These ear clips were designed in the starburst or atomic motif that was popular in the 1950s, yet they are so versatile and wearable now!

    Onyx-glass hoops attached to emerald-green-enamel and diamanté-embellished panels of silver-tone metal form these lovely and versatile earrings. Additional diamanté adorn the earlobe. The ear wires for pierced ears are original, but the lever backs are unmarked. These earrings are probably European in origin. Though Art Deco in style, something about this pair makes me think they may be from a later Revival era. Nevertheless, they are beautiful!

    These dangling art glass earrings feature pale pink, green and blue beads that dangle on chains suspended from a pink glass button. The pastel-colored beads in different shapes and sizes have white striations. These 1950s ear clips are lovely and versatile, and have lots of movement. Though unsigned, this pair resembles pieces made by Louis Rousselet, especially with the glass button at the earlobe and the high-quality of the beads. I am not certain, however, because of the style of the ear clip.

    Pearl & Blown Glass Bead 1950s Pendant Earrings by Louis Rousselet

    , ,
    These blown glass ear clips have clusters of beads in greens, purples, and reds, along with pearls. This pair was made by Louis Rousselet, according to Ginger Moro (the author of European Designer Jewelry and a Rousselet expert). Though marked "Charlin" on the ear clips, these pendants are "a re-issue of an earlier design from the '50s using vintage glass beads and pearls", stated Moro in correspondence, when I bought these earrings from her. The colors and design make this pair very versatile and easy to wear for day or evening.

    Clusters of tiny faux pearls with blown-glass flowers and leaves form these 1950s ear clips. The design and style of the beads remind me of the work of the French maker Louis Rousselet, although the earring backs are not the same as those he typically used. 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 – which is not unusual in hand-strung pieces – does not detract from their lovely appearance. What a great choice for a bride!

The ear clips are single hearts. The brooch, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, can be worn as a pendant by inserting the pin stem through the loops attached to the snake chain. Pretty clever, eh! While the pendant appears slightly off-center on the chain, its position was fixed at manufacture, as the loops are attached to the chain.

    Ruby, Diamanté & Gold Circle Pin & Earrings Set

    , , ,
    This vintage circle pin is one of many designed by Marcel Boucher in the 1950s. This lovely example of his work comes with earrings. The gold-plated open-circle brooch is embellished with an arrow of pavé topped with ruby-glass baguettes. The closed-circle ear clips are embellished with the same stones in a leaf-like setting. Perhaps these pieces were not originally a set. (The brooch is unmarked; the earrings have no inventory number.) Even so, they look great together!
