Fabulous French glass beaded necklace in transparent chartreuse, opaque pink, opaque light green, and glass faux pearl beads. Not marked but probably by the French maker Louis Rousselet, who produced jewelry for many French couturiers. Circa 1960. With three strands of glowing chartreuse beads alternating with very small baroque faux pearls, and a very big center element with pink bell shaped beads, light green disk shaped beads, faux pearls, and clear faceted beads in a slightly darker green than the chartreuse beads, wired to an antiqued goldtone filigree backing. Also with terminals with the same transparent faceted green beads wired to filigree backings. With a hook clasp and extender. Recently professionally restrung for security.
Great size -- wearable length is 20 1/2 inches. The center element is 2 1/4 inches in diameter. The sides drop about 2 inches. Very good condition. There are some losses around the holes and high points on the three large center baroque pearls, and on the top one of those pearls, there is some wear/loss on the top facing the back. There are some losses on some of the very small spacer pearls on the strands, and one appears to be more or less with most of its finish gone. Display form is life size.
