I just fell in love with this necklace when I saw it. It has an air of glamour about it and has a wonderful composition of color and glow. To me it is just right and not too much. The details tells me it is a good quality necklace. There are round, teardrop- and petalshaped faux beads together with gold/pink foil glassbeads, one pink center rhinestone and several small red or fuchsia colored glassbeads. All mounted on a metall base. It has a nice clasp with a rondell of rhinestones. I would love ideas or information on where it is from and hopefully who made it. If you have seen anything similar before.
The seller did not know much, she had bought it many years ago in an antique shop in Stockholm Sweden and that particular shop was known for selling a lot of vintage and antique french jewelry. But she had no specifik information about this necklace. I am curious about what you think about it. I am thinking it is from around 1940-50's but I am not sure? The necklace has some weight to it and it fits just perfectly around ones neck.
I will wear this on special occassions with a black or white dress and no other jewelry. Nothingelse needed :)
This is still a mystery. I think the necklace is french. Thanks för nice coments everyone! I found out that the Rousselet shop is still operating in Paris. Emailed them a photo of my necklace. They kindly answered me that it is 50/50 chance it is by Louis Rousselet, they were not sure. I am thinking I need to keep my eyes open for known Rousselet pieces - and necklaces by other makers - and study their details and hope that one I or you will come across an answer. If you do please let me know. Thank you :)
I am now on the lookout for some dashing but modest :) earrings to go with it.
