    The Details...

    These earrings feature a central faux pearl cabochon surrounded smaller faux pearls, with tassels of small faux pearls suspended beneath it. The earrings feature a silver tone metal filigree back and are clip on. They are stamped on the reverse with 'FRANCE'. The earrings measure 4cm x 2cm. 

    A Short History...

    Louis Rousselet was a major manufacturer of beads and jewellery incorporating his beads in Paris from the 1920s until the early 1970s. He produced pieces for the most prominent couturiers, such as Chanel. The beads were all hand wound and polished and, therefore, of exceptional quality. The lustrous faux pearls he created from glass beads coated in 'Essence d'Orient' are used prominently in these earrings.

    Wear it With...

    These earrings would look beautiful with a little black dress, but equally chic with a 1950s full skirted bridal gown.

    Data sheet


    The jewellery within the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection has survived to this day because it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime. It is important to continue to care for the jewellery that you buy from us to ensure its continued preservation. Here are some suggestions:

    - Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.

    - Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.

    - Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.

    - Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.

    - If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
