  • Vintage milk glass earrings by Miriam Haskell
    1960s milk glass pendants
    USD$195.00

    Milk Glass Bead Pendant Earrings by Miriam Haskell

    ,
    These vintage milk glass earrings by Miriam Haskell have a scored drop. The top is formed by a round white bead surrounded by smaller ones, a typical trait of this maker. These earrings have adjustable screw-backs (the combination screw and lever normally used by this maker in the 1960s). Scroll down to see two more milk-glass pieces, a brooch and necklace both by Haskell, that look great with these pendants.

    Milk Glass Bead, Diamanté & Gold Earrings by Miriam Haskell

    , , ,
    These milk glass earrings with beads and disks, rondelles, and gold-tone findings have a real Machine Age-look and associated movement. However, the use of French ear clips dates them to the late-1940s, and the white beads may take them into the 1950s, when white jewelry was extremely popular. I still consider this pair to be Art Deco in style, and I’ve seen the same motif used by this designer (Frank Hess) on earlier Miriam Haskell pieces. Whenever they were made, these ear clips are lots of fun! I saw them in an entirely new, bright, and glamorous light when they were chosen to walk the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. See them on the model who looked stunning in a bridal jumpsuit with skirt. You don't have to be a bride to add glamour to an ensemble with these fabulous earrings!

    Onyx & Enamel 1920s Drop Earrings

  • Alice Caviness earrings with bi-color beads
    Black-and-white ear clips by Alice Caviness

    Onyx Bi-color Bead Alice Caviness Earrings

    , ,
    These Alice Caviness earrings have clusters of black- and clear-glass bi-colored beads. Some have caps of silver-tone filigree, while other caps are solid metal. 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! In fact, these earrings walked the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. The designer paired them – unexpectedly, yet perfectly – with an Art Deco onyx link bracelet. Scroll down to see it.

  • Diamante dangle earrings w/emerald enamel & onyx hoops
    Emerald, onyx & diamante earrings
    USD$345.00

    Onyx, Emerald & Diamanté Dangle Earrings

    , ,
    These diamanté dangle earrings are inset with emerald enamel accents and have additional sparkling stones at the earlobes. Onyx-glass hoops form the bottom of these lovely and versatile pendants. 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!

  • 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!

  • 1950s French pearl cluster earrings
    Made-in-France earrings in style of Louis Rousselet
    USD$345.00

    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.

  • Vintage gold flower necklace/brooch & earrings
    Floral brooch worn as pendant
    USD$295.00

    Pearl, Diamanté & Gold Flower Necklace/Brooch & Earrings Set

    , , , , ,
    This vintage gold flower necklace and earrings set from 1950 is a '3-for-1' jewel! It has a trio of heart-shaped blossoms that form the centerpiece, which can be detached and worn as a brooch. The ear clips are single blossoms. The gold-plated fretwork has swirled pavé edges that embrace champagne-colored faux pearls. Attach the brooch to the snake chain by inserting the pin stem through the necklace loops. Pretty clever, eh! While the pendant appears slightly off-center on the chain, its position was fixed at manufacture. Please note that this necklace (which measures 14 3/8″) was made for a slim neck, but you could easily add a chain extender. Wear the pieces together or separately with complimentary contemporary jewels.

  • 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.

  • Vintage peridot earrings with diamanté
    Peridot Art Deco pendants with shepherd hook
    USD$345.00

    Peridot & Diamanté Pendant Earrings

    , ,
    These vintage peridot earrings each have a faceted, teardrop-shaped glass stone with a decorative silver-tone metal cap. It drops from diamanté-embellished links. The yellow-metal shepherd hooks on these delicate and elegant 1920s pendants make me think they are European in origin. Most of the diamanté are cloudy, but they do not detract from the appearance of these beauties – the star attraction is the pale-green-glass drops. An easy-to-wear adornment for a woman who loves Art Deco and likes to wear warm colors!
