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. Sets were particularly popular in the 1950s, when matching accessories (hats, gloves, belts, shoes, and jewels) were in vogue. With today’s fashions, you can wear the pieces together or separately. You can also combine one part of the set with complementary contemporary jewelry already in your jewelry box.

    Aquamarine & Sterling Bow 1940s Brooch & Earrings Set by Hobé

    , ,
    A single aquamarine glass stone-centered flower is surrounded by flowers and leaves applied to the ribbons of the bow that forms this sterling silver 1940s brooch by Hobé. An aquamarine glass stone is at the center of each bow-shaped earring. The detail on these pieces is a superb example of the maker's craftsmanship. The brooch has a roll-over safety clasp, and the earrings are clip-backs. The same floral motif is used in Hobé's Aquamarine & Sterling Flower Bracelet -- scroll down to see it.

    Black Enamel & Diamanté ‘Rose of Seville’ 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Marcel Boucher

    , ,
    In this 1950s set, Marcel Boucher has crafted a lovely three-dimensional rose in rhodium-plated metal with black enamel and round diamanté. The center of the flower looks as though it's waiting to open. The stem of the flower is adorned with baquettes. The brooch closes with a roll-over safety clasp. The clip-back earrings are just as well designed. This highly-detailed set deserves its elegant name: Rose of Seville.

    Brown Topaz & Citrine 1950s Brooch/Pendant & Earrings Set by Schreiner

    , ,
    This Shreiner brooch, the centerpiece of this 1950s set, features huge multi-faceted, oval brown topaz glass stones with layers of citrine and clear inverted glass stone accents in elaborate gold-tone settings. Even if the pieces weren't signed, the gorgeous glass, inverted stones, ornate settings and donut-hole clip-backs scream SCHREINER! This great color combination is stunning in any season. The dome-shaped brooch, which has a roll-over safety clasp, can also be worn as a pendant. The last photo shows that option on a black rubber cord, although you may prefer a gold chain. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless steel twist lock (just like the one in the photo) is included with this purchase.

    Citrine & Sterling Bouquet 1940s Brooch & Earrings Set by Hobé

    , ,
    The brooch in this amazing 1940s set by Hobé features flowers in shades of citrine glass atop sterling silver stems, surrounded by leaves and buds, all wrapped in ribbon and tied with a bow. The earring centers of citrine glass are surrounded by furled petals. The brooch has a rollover safety clasp; the earrings are screw-backs. Pieces by this maker were all hand-made and very three-dimensional. This set is extraordinary! Scroll down to see my Citrine & Sterling Flower Link Retro Modern Bracelet by the same maker.

    Citrine, Golden Topaz & Mother of Pearl 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Alice Caviness

    , ,
    This 1950s brooch and earrings set by Alice Caviness features amazing layers of citrine crystals, golden topaz beads, mother-of-pearl disks and textured brass leaves wired onto a decorative frame, which is mounted on another frame with the pin and roll-over safety clasp. The complexity of the design and construction seen here are often present in this maker's work, which I believe is underrated. This set is definitely not for the faint-hearted! I will include the matching bracelet, which has only three of its four strands of beads, but it is definitely wearable. I have a similar pair of earrings by the same maker – scroll down to see them.

    Citrine, Pearl & Gold 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,
    Each piece in this elegant late-1950s set by Elsa Schiaparelli features a faceted citrine glass stone surrounded by tiny pearls in an elaborate, antiqued gold-plated setting. Notice how the faceting of each citrine ― known as a dentelle ― forms an eight-pointed star design. Schiaparelli frequently used this cut of glass stone in her pieces. This brooch has a roll-over safety clasp; the matching earrings are clip-backs. You can see the utility patent here, below the names Frederick A. Ballou, Jr. & Rogers T. Stafford.

    Coral, Pearl & Gold 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Hattie Carnegie

    , ,
    This 1950s coral, pearl and gold brooch and earrings set by Hattie Carnegie executes one of her common themes — florals — to perfection.  The enameled leaves look as though they're blowing in the breeze. The detail is superb — even the backs of the brooch and earrings show the leaves' veins. A faux pearl adds a nice accent to each piece. The brooch has a roll-over safety clasp; the earrings are clip-backs.

    Crystal Briolette Art Deco Necklace & Earrings Set

    , ,
    Nine faceted crystal briolettes dangle from a silver-tone chain in this elegant 1920s Art Deco necklace. The matching earrings feature a pair of the same briolettes that dangle from unequal lengths of chain. The all-original screw-back earrings, which can be modified for pierced ears, each have a crystal stone at the earlobe. This elegant set goes with everything and really sparkles as the crystals dance when you move!

    Crystal Disk Art Deco Necklace & Earrings Set

    , ,
    Graduated crystal disks and a faceted crystal-set sterling clasp make this 1920s Art Deco necklace a real knockout! The faceting reflects light beautifully. This necklace has substantial weight. The original screw-backs on the matching earrings were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. The original velvet case is included with this set. How divine!

    Diamanté & Gold Starfish 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Alice Caviness

    , ,
    This 1950s brooch and earrings set by Alice Caviness is bold and dazzling. The aurora borealis rhinestones in the gold-tone setting take on the color of the metal, catch the light and seem to dance. The starfish-shaped brooch has a roll-over safety clasp; the earrings are clip-backs. This set is perfect for an outfit in a warm color palette.

    Emerald, Diamanté & Rose Vermeil Sterling Flower 1940s Brooch & Earrings Set by Coro

    , ,
    Two large and two small flowers with emerald glass stone and diamanté centers are tied with a bow in this Retro Modern brooch by Coro Craft, Coro's high-end line. The matching screw-back earrings repeat the large flowers. The metal is rose gold-washed sterling silver. A 1940s classic!

    Emerald, Sapphire & Golden Topaz 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Hattie Carnegie

    , ,
    Layers of emerald, sapphire and golden topaz rhinestones are combined with black metal flower petals in this 1950s brooch and earrings set by Hattie Carnegie. Some of the stones appear teal in color, depending on the light. This set is a fine example of her imaginative color combinations, favored floral motifs and complexity of design. What a knock-out! The settings are japanned metal. The brooch has a roll-over safety clasp; the earrings have clip-backs. The last photo shows how fantastic this brooch looks on a dress sash. Although the brooch has a ring to allow the piece to be worn as a pendant, the ring is not sturdy and cannot be replaced without damaging the back of the brooch.

    Gold & Diamanté ‘Merry Whirl’ 1940s Double-clip Brooch & ‘Gay Swirl’ Earrings by Coro

    , ,
    This set is very interesting. The diamanté-embellished gold-tone Duette is from Coro's Merry Whirl set, while the gold-tone and diamanté earrings are from their Gay Swirl design. Nevertheless, I wouldn't hesitate to wear the pieces together. The Duette, Coro's double-clip brooch, can be worn as a brooch (in the positions shown) or as separate fur clips. The earrings are screw-backs. These sets were advertised in the April 1948 issue of Life magazine, which is how I know these details. The last photo shows the ad. You can see the utility patent for the brooch mechanism here, shown below Coro's name.

    Gold Disk & Diamanté 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Pennino

    , ,
    Pavé disks intersect and overlay scored disks of gold-tone metal to form this classic 1950s brooch and earrings set by Pennino. The gold disks remind me of open fans. The layered design and construction of this set are characteristic of exceptional makers like this one. The brooch closes with a roll-over safety clasp. The earrings are clip-backs; note that about 1/4" of the pave disk will sit below your earlobe. Wear the earrings and brooch together or separately, to create different looks. Your own real or faux diamond studs or hoop earrings would also work well with this brooch.

    Jade Art Glass, Gemstone & Pearl 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Hobé

    , ,
    Jade art glass; amethyst, sapphire and citrine glass stones; and faux pearls set in gold-plated metal with an overlay of filigree flowers and leaves form this 1950s brooch and earrings set by Hobé.  Notice the striations in the jade stones and the delicate flower and leaves in gold wire. The brooch has a roll-over safety clasp, and the earrings are clip-backs. This set is a great example of Hobé's '50s Glam look.

    Pearl, Diamanté & Gold Flower 1950s Brooch/Pendant & Earrings Set by Marcel Boucher

    , ,
    The brooch in this 1950s set by Marcel Boucher features a trio of gold-plated fretwork heart-shaped blossoms with champagne-colored faux pearls and diamanté. The brooch can be worn as a pendant by inserting the pin stem through the loops attached to the snake chain. Pretty clever, eh! The brooch has a roll-over safety clasp, and the matching earrings are clip-backs. While the pendant appears slightly off-center on the chain, its position was fixed at manufacture, as the loops are attached to the chain. Please note that this necklace (which measures 14 3/8") was made for a slim neck, but you could easily add a chain extender.

    Pearl, Gemstone Bead & Rondelle French 1950s Necklace & Earrings Set by Louis Rousselet

    , ,
    Four strands of glass pearls with ruby, sapphire, emerald and amethyst blown-glass-bead and rhinestone-rondelle accents form this stunning 1950s necklace and earrings set by the incomparable French maker Louis Rousselet. (In case you aren't familiar with his work, you need to know that he was regarded as the premier faux pearl maker in the first half of the 20th century.) The necklace closes with a tongue-in-groove clasp adorned with pearls and colored beads. The matching earrings are clip-backs. Fnding a Rousselet-signed piece is incredibly rare (most had only signed paper hang tags), which makes this necklace with matching earrings all the more extraordinary!

    Rock Crystal 1950s Necklace & Earrings Set

    , ,
    This faceted rock crystal bead necklace with matching earrings and sterling findings comes in its original box. Made in the 1950s, this set is reminiscent of similar pieces made in the Art Deco era. The original screw-backs on the earrings were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. The trademark Elco may refer to Miglo Jewelry Co.

    Ruby, Diamanté & Gold Circle 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Marcel Boucher

    , ,
    Marcel Boucher designed a number of circle pins and earrings in the 1950s, and this 1950s set is a lovely example of this work. The gold-plated open-circle brooch is embellished with an arrow of pavé topped with ruby glass baguettes. The closed-circle earrings are embellished with the same stones in a leaf-like setting. Perhaps these pieces were not originally a set.  (The brooch is unmarked; the earrings have no design number.) Even so, they look great together!

    Ruby, Diamanté & Rose Vermeil Sterling 1940s ‘Sparkling Peonies’ Duette & Earrings Set by Adolph Katz for Coro

    , ,
    These two 1940s rose gold-plated sterling silver flowers edged in diamanté with ruby glass stone centers can be worn together as a brooch or as separate fur clips. This Coro Retro Modern Duette — their name for their double clip/brooch — has matching earrings. This versatile set showcases one of Adolph Katz's brilliant designs from both an aesthetic and engineering point of view. For Duettes that were asymmetrical like this one, the clip/brooch frame had to be customized to work with the particular pair of clips. Truly gorgeous! You can see the utility patent for the brooch mechanism here, shown below Coro's name. This design was advertised by Coro as Sparkling Peonies.

    Sapphire & Diamanté Jeweleaf 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Alfred Philippe for Trifari

    , ,
    Named Jeweleaf, this 1950s set by Alfred Philippe features sapphire glass baguettes that outline diamanté-embellished maple leaves. The setting is rhodium-plated base metal. The brooch closes with a roll-over safety clasp; the earrings are clip-backs. An all diamanté version, described as "platinum-toned … paved with stones" and "one of two charming variations on a Spring theme", was advertised in the February 1, 1952 issue of Vogue. The brooch was $17.50, and the earrings were $15.00, for a total of $32.50. (In 1950, the average U.S. family's income was $81.50 per week.) Note that the photo of the brooch alone shows it in the position indicated in the design patent (last photo), but you can wear the brooch in any position you wish.

    Sapphire & Sterling Bow 1940s Brooch & Earrings Set by Hobé

    This 1940s classic sapphire and sterling bow brooch and earrings set by Hobé is a bit smaller and more restrained than other pieces he produced in this decade, but this set is just as beautiful. The sapphire glass stones are a lovely shade of blue. The brooch has a roll-over safety clasp, and the earrings are screw-backs.

    Sapphire, Diamanté & Rose Vermeil Sterling 1940s Brooch & Earrings Set by Reinad

    , ,
    I couldn't decide if this 1940s Retro Modern rose-gold-washed sterling silver brooch with large faceted sapphire glass stones and diamanté accents by Reinad should be worn horizontally or vertically until I saw Anne Baxter wearing a set like this in the 1946 movie Angel on my Shoulder. Her brooch was perfectly placed in the vertical position on her dress at the base of its V-neckline. She even wore the matching earrings. The brooch has a roll-over safety clasp, and the earrings are screw-backs.  I've included a photo of the brooch in the horizontal position, so you can decide if you prefer it that way. You can see a similar piece that was shown in the 1945 catalog of Bennett Brothers (a jewelry wholesaler). The page was entitled "New Pink Gold Finish on Sterling Silver — Styled by Master Craftsmen" (who were not named). The brooch shown in the last photo was $28.50 retail, and the earrings were $13.50, or $42.00 for the set. (While I don't have income statistics for the mid-1940s, to put these prices in perspective, the U.S. government reported that by 1950, the average American household's weekly income was about $81.)
