This elegant French necklace in the style of Louis Rousselet has elongated faux baroque pearls separated by clusters of small, round faux pearls and blue-glass beads. It has an adjustable hook-and-tail closure. I have other pieces by and in the style of this maker — scroll down to see them.
Small glass round cream-colored pearls surrounding a large glass baroque pearl in the same tone form these 1950s French earrings with clip-backs. Though these earrings are unsigned, the construction (especially the clip-back mechanism) and materials are consistent with those used by Louis Rousselet. These earrings would make a lovely accessory for daytime, evening or bridal/wedding/prom wear.
Four strands of glass pearls with ruby, sapphire, emerald and amethyst blown-glass-bead and rhinestone-rondelle accents form this stunning 1950s necklace and earrings set by the incomparable French maker Louis Rousselet. (In case you aren't familiar with his work, you need to know that he was regarded as the premier faux pearl maker in the first half of the 20th century.) The necklace closes with a tongue-in-groove clasp adorned with pearls and colored beads. The matching earrings are clip-backs. Fnding 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!
These clip-back 1950s French earrings by Louis Rousselet feature faux pearls in various sizes, with accents of ruby, sapphire, emerald and amethyst blown glass leaves and rhinestone 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 ear clips are another clue to the maker. 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.
This 1920s French Art Deco necklace is formed with jade and ivory Galalith inter-locking barrels, pale jade glass beads, and brass spacers strung on chain. Though unsigned, the beads and necklace design are unmistakably by Louis Rousselet. This piece, which is known as a puzzle necklace, closes with a screw-in beehive clasp. I have two pairs of jade bead Art Deco earrings that look fabulous with this necklace – scroll down to see them.
Graduated beads in a soft green glass with swirls of color form this two-strand French 1950s necklace that is undoubtedly 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. And best of all, I actually have a pair of Art Deco earrings with matching green glass beads – scroll down to see them. These pieces look fabulous together!
