Parure Jewelry - What does Parure Mean?
I recently purchased some jewelry. As I was going through it I noticed a tag attached to one of the pieces. On that tag was written four part parure $75.00. This new term provoked my curiosity. My fingers flew across the keyboard typing this word in a Google search. From what I gathered it means a set or more than one piece that match or go together. It is a French word that was first used with fine jewelry but now it is also used with costume jewelry. Demi parure means two pieces in set like a necklace and a matching bracelet.
