    Pearl & Silver-Mesh Chain 1920s Necklace

    , ,
    This pearl and silver chain necklace from the 1920s is dainty. A large irregular faux pearl (which looks like mother-of-pearl coating) capped on both ends with filigree forms the centerpiece. Silver-mesh chain accented with two round faux pearls on each side complete the piece. The mesh between one side pearl and the clasp has very minor fraying. The photos of the center make the filigree caps appear much warmer than they actually are. This necklace, which closes with a spring-ring clasp, was made for a slim neck. Please note the necklace length (14 3/4″) and check your neck size before purchasing this lovely piece. The construction does allow for a chain extender.

    Pearl, Diamanté & Gold Flower 1950s Brooch/Pendant & Earrings Set by Marcel Boucher

    , , , ,
    The brooch in this 1950s set by Marcel Boucher features a trio of heart-shaped blossoms. Their gold-plated fretwork has swirled pavé edges that embrace champagne-colored faux pearls. 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. Please note that this necklace (which measures 14 3/8") was made for a slim neck, but you could easily add a chain extender.

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

    , , ,
    This masterpiece of 1950s costume jewelry is an exceptional necklace and earrings set signed by Louis Rousselet. It features four strands of glass pearls with ruby, sapphire, emerald and amethyst blown-glass-bead and rondelle accents.

The necklace closes with a concealed clasp adorned with pearls and colored beads. The matching earrings are ear clips. Finding a Rousselet-signed piece is incredibly rare (most had only signed paper hang tags), which makes this necklace with matching earrings all the more extraordinary!

What a great piece for a round or scooped neckline!
