Condition Report:

Very Good - Some wear to the gilt metal consistent with age and use. This is only visible upon very close inspection and does not deter from the overall appeal of the piece.

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.
