Jade Bead Dangling Earrings by Louis Rousselet
1 1/2" x 1"
"FRANCE" (Rousselet pieces typically were signed with only paper hang tags)
These jade bead earrings feature clusters of vibrant dark-apple-green-glass barrels cascading from a white-metal back. Some of the beads have striations. Though unsigned, these delightful 1950s creations feature the same horseshoe-shaped ear clip typically used by Louis Rousselet. What’s more significant is the way the earrings are constructed. The backs have a “metallic support in the shape of a rosette” to which the beads are wired. Florence Müller (in Costume Jewelry for Haute Couture) cites this “rosette” as a “signature” of this maker’s work, which was rarely signed on the jewelry. These colorful, playful and unusual earrings are perfect for any occasion. You can see them on my favorite model in this blog post.
