is the more modern name for a parure, a set of - for
example - necklace, bracelet, brooch, and earrings,
which are made of the same kind of gems and are designed
to be worn all at the same time. Parures became
fashionable towards the end of the 16th century and were
revived in the 19th century. Traditionally, they are
made with diamonds for formal wear and other precious
stones for day wear.
