June Birthstone Jewelry

About June Birthstone Jewelry

June birthstone jewelry features the pearl, a gemstone that has always had universal appeal. Once the most expensive gem, pearls became affordable in the early 1900s when the process of culturing pearls in saltwater was introduced in Japan. Artificial pearls were first made in France during the Renaissance. One of the premier makers in the first half of the 20th century was Louis Rousselet. Many of his pieces are included in this collection. You will also find pearl jewels by Miriam Haskell and Hattie Carnegie as well as unsigned beauties.

  • Miriam Haskell pearl necklace with amethyst beads
    Miriam Haskell pearl necklace with amethysts, doubled
    USD$345.00

    Baroque Pearl & Amethyst Bead 1970s Long Necklace by Miriam Haskell

    ,
    This Miriam Haskell pearl necklace is a beautiful example of this maker’s work. The long strand of faux cream baroque pearls and pearl bead spacers is interspersed with faceted amethyst glass beads. The pearls are textured and somewhat varying in size. Wear this piece as a single long strand or doubled, depending on your neckline and the look you want to create. Although I usually prefer earlier vintage jewels, this beautiful necklace was part of my personal collection because it is so elegant, timeless and versatile. The wear to the nacre of some pearls does not detract in any way from the lovely appearance of this piece.

  • 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!

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.

    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.

    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.

    Pearl, Gemstone Bead & Rondelle Necklace & Earrings by Louis Rousselet

    , , ,
    This exceptional vintage pearl necklace by the incomparable Louis Rousselet features four strands of glass pearls in varied shapes and sizes. They are accented with hand-wound-glass beads in gemstone colors paired with rondelles.

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