Costume Jewelry Sets / Parures

This nice selection of costume jewelry sets (also called parures) is from the 1920s-1950s. Each set has a necklace, bracelet, or brooch with matching earrings. Parures were particularly popular in the 1950s, when matching accessories (hats, gloves, belts, shoes, and jewels) were in vogue. During that decade, a full parure might have included a necklace, brooch, earrings, and a single or pair of bracelets, which a woman would wear at the same time. With today’s fashions, we tend to dress down, so you can wear the pieces in these sets together or separately. You can also combine one part of the set with complementary contemporary jewelry already in your jewelry box.
