Fabulous Early 1900s Parure
by: Anonymous

Hi Kaye thank you for writing in with the following jewelry question:

"I have this necklace and earrings. I believe it is from the 40's.
On the clasp is Pat Pend. On the other side is a mark....Ad_in..I can' make out the third letter. It looks like it could be an s,e or f...but not sure. I have searched and searched for the maker to no avail. Can you help? Thank you, Kaye"

Kaye, what a fabulous antique parure - a set of various items of matching jewelry, such as this example, rose to popularity in 17th century Europe. "A matching suite of coordinating pieces could include a necklace, a comb, a tiara, a diadem, a bandeau, a pair of bracelets, pins, rings, drop earrings or cluster stud earrings, brooch and a belt clasp that might be worn over a fine dress."

Nineteenth century costume jewelry was made using base metals, such as this. Brass, copper nickel silver,and even iron at one stage.

Celluloid was widely used in the 1890 - 1920s and rhinestones was another imitator of diamonds. The parure could be early 1900s.

The patent number on a piece of jewelry refers to the invention not the date.

Kaye we would need to see a photo of the jewelry mark to help with our research. You are very welcome o upload a photo of the mark in a follow-up submission. You well see a button underneath where you ask the question, that says UPLOAD.

best wishes,



Yvonne Hammouda-Eyre
