Outlook Essentials - Perfect Long Pearl Necklace

Every woman should have a long string of pearls to toss on her favorite little black dress or glam up more casual look. Pearls come in many shades and these red toned vintage French pearls are truly something exceptional. Baroque and glossy vintage pearls turn this long pearl necklace into a perfect accessorizing solution.

These pearls get their red hue from the red glass core hiding beneath pearl coating, revealing itself only when lights goes through the pearls.

This long pearl necklace measures appr. 150cm allowing
it to be worn as single or double row.

Absolutely deliciously glowing pearls are combined with
sparkly golden faceted and deep red glass beads.

Igal naisel võiks olla pikk pärlikett, mida visata oma lemmik musta kleidile või millega lisada pidulikkust igapäevasematele rõivastele. Pärleid on igas toonis ja kujus ning need vintage klaaspärlid Prantsusmaalt on midagi erilist. Baroksed ja läikivad klaaspärlid muudavad selle kaelakee ideaalseks aksessuaariks!

Need pärlid saavad oma punaka tooni punasest klaasist, mis peidab end pärlikihi all, näidates end vaid siis, kui valgus läbib pärli.

Vintage French Pearls get Sparkly Companions

Vintage French pearls get sparkly companions. Did you noticed how well copper matches with the pearls with red glass core?
I'm thinking of using some round flat transparent Czech beads. They have nice pattern although it doesn't show that well on photo. They look like candy :) Sparkly golden faceted beads will have the honorable task of glamming it up and deep red beads will add some color... and sparkly rhinestone spacers to catch light.

Baroque shaped vintage glass pearls with similar oval pearls.
Vintage glass pearls with copper wire - perfect match!
Transparent Czech glass beads have pressed pattern like candy.
Sparkly golden faceted beads and deep red glass beads
I'll be combining with the rest.

Vintage Prantsuse pärlid saavad endale sädelevaid kaaslasi :) Märkasite, kui hästi nende pärlite juurde sobib vask?
Ma mõtlesin, et nende pärlite juurde oleks hea kasutada neid läbipaistvaid ümmargusi lapikuid helmeid. Neil on pressitud muster, mis pildil kahjuks hästi välja ei tule. Need näevad välja nagu karamellid :) Sädelevad kuldsed lihvitud helmed lisavad glamuuri, tumepunased helmed natuke värvi... ja kristallidega vahehelmed püüavad valgust.

Vintage French Pearls from Colorful Glass

Look at these colorful vintage pearls that I got from France! This is a great find from one of my treasure hunts! Finding large handmade pearls is pretty rare and a matching set of different size beads makes me feel even more lucky! What I find fascinating about these is that the beads were made from colorful glass (blue, red, green, pink) and then covered with pearl coating. So the glass color is shining through the pearl coating turning it into blue pearl, red pearl etc. The oval and pinched shaped pearls were handmade - their shape and size vary a bit.

I got these from the same vendor as the Louis Rousselet pearls and components. So it's possible that these pearls were also made in his workshops. And further more, some of the oval pearls have one end of the hole sealed with pearl coating meaning that the pearls were dipped one by one into pearl solution and were dried separately. Perhaps like the high quality pearls by Simon & Simon.

The colorful glass is best visible near the holes of the pearls.

Here are the glass pearls with red glass core with small pressed
oval pearls. The small oval pearls I got from another French
vendor couple years back. These match perfectly!

Light going through the glass brings out the intense red color.
It also seems that the pearl coating is uneven.

These vintage French pearls are so colorful as candy!

Vaadake neid ilusaid vintage klaaspärleid Prantsusmaalt! Mis nende pärlite puhul on eriti põnev, et need on valmistatud värvilisest klaasist (sinine, punane, roheline, roosa) ning kaetud pärlmutrise kihiga. Nii et klaasi värv annab pärlile värvi kumades läbi pärlmutrise kihi! Ovaalsed ja lopergused pärlid on käsitsi tehtud. Nende kuju ja suurus varieeruvad.

Sain need samalt edasimüüjalt kellelt ka Louis Rousselet pärlid ja komponendid. Võib eeldada, et ka need käsitsivalmistatud pärlid on Rousselet töötubadest pärit. Ja mis veel, osadel ovaalsete pärlitel on läbiv auk ühelt poolt kaetud pärlmutrise värviga. See tähendab, et need olid ükshaaval traadi otsas kastetud pärlmutrisesse värvi ning seal ka kuivanud. Võibolla nagu tänapäeval tehakse kõrg-kvaliteetseid pärleid prantsuse firmas Simon & Simon.
