Rousselet Vintage Pearl French Crystal Earrings c1930
A delightful pair of vintage french pearl and crystal earrings. Dating to around circa 1930 and attributable to Louis Rousselet. An excellent example of French vintage costume jewellery from this renowned jewellery maker. Louis Rousselet (1892-1980) was born in Paris. At the age of eight he apprenticed under M. Rousseau where he mastered the technique of lamp-work beads. In 1922, in Menilmontant, Louis began manufacturing glass and Galalith beads as well as imitation pearls (glass beads coated on the outside with essence d'Orient, a fish scale compound) and which you can see in this pair of earrings. These earrings are in excellent vintage condition and incredibly wearable and versatile for today's and no doubt future fashion and styles. These vintage French earrings would make a wonderful classic addition to your jewellery collection and indeed would be perfect for a bride. They are so very delicate in their construction and offer a very demure look. The measures approx. 5cm long and 2cm wide and are signed Made in France on both clips. The style of the clip itself typically French and the metal setting is silvertone.
