A wonderful pair of vintage Louis Rousselet Faux Pearl Clip Earrings. Huge 17mm pearl on each earring. Fabulous statement earrings from the highly sought after French designer Louis Rousselet.

Louis Rousselet (1892-1980) was born in Paris. He apprenticed at the young age of eight under M. Rousseau where he learned to master 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). Very soon his firm was a major source of handmade beads worldwide, supplying to, and designing for, other jewelry greats like Coco Chanel and Robert Piguet.

These wonderful LR earrings are a silver tone base metal with each earring featuring a nice creamy big 17mm round faux pearl. Perfectly elegant and divine. The hinged ear clasps features nice filigree floral silver tone backs. The back of each earring is signed France. Each earring measures 3/4" wide across. Projects 3/4". Nice light weight and very comfortable to wear. They feel fabulous on the ears. Overall condition is very good for their age. They have some light tarnish or patina on the silver tone metal. Pearls are not missing any surface. Hinges are nice and snug without any damage.
