"MADE IN FRANCE"

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?

    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.
