Vintage Earrings

Vintage earrings are one of my favorite types of jewelry, and here you’ll find a vast selection from the 1920s-1950s. From Art Deco dangling styles to bead- and stone-cluster ear clips, this collection features a wide range of colors, materials, and silhouettes. Pieces like chandeliers by Hattie Carnegie or pearl clusters by Louis Rousselet will draw every eye up to your face, adding that little extra sparkle to any look. It’s no wonder earrings are many women’s go-to accessory. Whether adding color or shine to a simple everyday look or bringing that stunning cocktail dress to the next level, the perfect pair of vintage earrings will help to make you and your outfit memorable.

    Pearl & Blown Glass Flower French 1950s Earrings

    , ,
    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!

    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!

    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 blown-glass.

    Pearl, Gemstone Bead & Rondelle 1950s Earrings by Louis Rousselet

    , ,
    These 1950s French ear clips by Louis Rousselet feature faux pearls in various sizes, with accents of ruby, sapphire, emerald and amethyst blown glass leaves and 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. 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. 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.

    Peridot & Diamanté Pendant Earrings

    , ,
    These vintage teardrop earrings each have a faceted, peridot-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 each pale-green-glass drop. The perfect adornment for a woman who loves Art Deco and looks best in warm colors!

    , ,
    These Jakob Bengel earrings feature raised black Galalith triangles with red Galalith slots. The chrome settings envelope the stones. A stack of chrome disks completes the design.
