Here is a magnificent beaded necklace by the French designer Louis Rousselet. The chunky textured beads range in size from around 10mm up to 15mm. The opalescent beads are interspersed with graduating sizes of faceted crystals. The shortest strand is 14.5" and fits like a true choker. The weight is a hefty 204.9 grams. The way the beads grab the light is truly extraordinary! Circa early 1950's. Not signed but few Rousselet pieces were. Has his signature glass domed clasp. Excellent condition. Questions welcomed.
A wonderful treasure trove of vintage, antique and estate jewelry. Where the unusual is every day!
