About Louis Rousselet Jewelry

This fine collection of Louis Rousselet jewelry includes necklaces, earrings, brooches, and parures made in France from the 1920s through the 1950s. His pieces were usually signed only with a paper hang tag. Jewelry with the L.R. mark is rare, but you will find a few signed pieces here. Rousselet manufactured glass and Galalith beads and faux pearls that he used in his own designs and also sold worldwide. Because his components and findings have a distinctive look, in some cases I have been able to attribute particular works to him. When in doubt, I have added a question mark to his name as “Maker”.

    Baroque Pearl French 1950s Earrings

    , ,
    These baroque pearl earrings have a large, cream-colored glass pearl center encircled by a ring of small, matching round pearls. Though these 1950s earrings are unsigned, the construction (especially the ear-clip mechanism) and materials are consistent with those used by Louis Rousselet. (His pieces were usually only signed with paper hang tags.) These earrings would make a lovely accessory for daytime, evening, or bridal/wedding/prom wear.

  • Green glass bead necklace by Louis Rousselet
    Front of 2-strand French necklace

    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 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.

  • Art glass earrings in pastels, from France
    Pale pink, green & blue glass bead earrings
    USD$295.00

    Pastel Art Glass Earrings from France

    , ,
    These 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, they resemble pieces made by Louis Rousselet. The clues are the glass button at the earlobe and the beauty and uniqueness of the beads. I am not certain, however, because of the style of the ear clip. Nonetheless, these jewels are fun!

  • Glass bead earrings by Louis Rousselet
    1950s Louis Rousselet earrings
    USD$375.00

    Pearl & Glass Bead Pendant Earrings by Louis Rousselet

    , ,
    These glass bead earrings have clusters in greens, purples, and reds, along with tiny pearls. This pair was made by Louis Rousselet, according to Ginger Moro (the author of European Designer Jewelry and a Rousselet expert), who sold them to me. Though marked "Charlin" on the ear clips, Moro stated that these pendants are "a re-issue of an earlier design from the '50s using vintage glass beads and pearls". This maker's beads are highly-coveted because they were all created from hand-wound glass. The colors and design make this pair very versatile and easy to wear for day or evening.

  • Vintage flower earrings probably by Louis Rousselet
    1950s French ear clips w/pearls & glass beads
    USD$345.00

    Pearl & Glass Flower Earrings from France

    , ,
    These vintage flower earrings have clusters of tiny faux pearls with glass flowers and leaves. The design and style of the beads remind me of the work of the French maker Louis Rousselet, although the ear clips are not the same as those he typically used. However, the findings I'm familiar with would have been too small for this 1950s 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!

  • Pearl basket earrings by Louis Rousselet
    1950s French dangling earrings
    USD$345.00

    Pearl Basket French Dangle Earrings

    , ,
    These pearl basket earrings were probably made by Louis Rousselet, based on the French filigree back and ear clip he typically used. Each pendant has a basket of glass pearls suspended from a large, single pearl. It's held in place by a cluster of glass pearls mounted on a round, white-metal filigree back. This part is designed to adorn the earlobe. These ear clips are as perfect for a wedding, prom, or special occasion as they are for everyday wear. Add a single strand of pearls and look extraordinary!

    USD$395.00

    Pearl Brooch with Emerald Beads

    , ,
    This vintage pearl brooch was made in France in the 1950s. It has faux pearls and emerald-glass beads in various shapes and sizes, all hand-wired onto a gilt-metal filigree back with a trombone clasp. This unusual three-dimensional creation is in the style of Louis Rousselet. Note that his work was usually signed only with a paper hang tag, so most of his surviving pieces remain unsigned. This spectacular brooch is right for day or evening wear. Although the back of one pearl is peeling, this tiny blemish doesn't diminish the beauty of this jewel. For a unique look, how about wearing this piece as a wedding accessory – on the bride's gown or in her hair? Scroll down to see French pearl earrings from the same period and probably the same maker.

    Pearl Cluster French 1950s Dangle Earrings

    , ,
    These 1950s pearl cluster earrings resemble a bunch of grapes. They are suspended from a large glass-pearl button mounted on a white-metal filigree back. Though unsigned, these ear clips have the traditional filigree back, ear-clip mechanism, and button-bead at the earlobe typically used by Louis Rousselet. Moreover, the unusual shape of the pearls could only have been made by someone of his caliber. (Note that Rousselet pieces were typically signed only with a paper hang tag.) These beautiful earrings are right for day, evening or bridal/ wedding/prom wear. Scroll down to see a gorgeous brooch with similar pearls and emerald-glass beads.

  • Pearl and gemstone earrings by Louis Rousselet
    Louis Rousselet 1950s earrings
    USD$375.00

    Pearl, Gemstone Bead & Rondelle Earrings

    , ,
    Pearl and gemstone earrings by Louis Rousselet are a welcome and versatile addition to any jewelry wardrobe. These 1950s French ear clips feature faux pearls in various sizes, with accents of ruby, sapphire, emerald and amethyst hand-wound-glass leaves along with 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 type of ear clip used is another clue to the creator, who usually signed his pieces with only paper hang tags. 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. Although the coating on some pearls appears to have bubbles, I think they are intended. Scroll down to see the magnificent necklace and earrings set in the same design.

Finding a Rousselet-signed piece is incredibly rare (most had only signed paper hang tags), which makes this set all the more extraordinary!
