White glass pearl petals are embellished with tiny pale-blue-glass pearls and sapphire-blue-blown-glass beads in these elegant French 1950s earrings. Though unsigned, the mountings of concentric circles, the style of ear clips and the quality of the beads are unmistakable signs of Louis Rousselet’s hand.

Vintage Necklaces, Costume Jewelry Sets / Parures, 1950s Jewelry, Louis Rousselet JewelryThis masterpiece of 1950s costume jewelry is an exceptional necklace and earrings set signed by Louis Rousselet.
