This is a beautiful amethyst and diamond parure.
This is a contemporary parure by Michael Youssoufian. It contains a necklace, earrings, and a ring. All of the pieces are designed with oval amethysts, within brilliant-cut diamonds borders and rose-cut stone swags, interspersed with pear-shaped amethyst drops.
I think it’s just lovely. The diamonds and the open space are a lovely foil to those beautiful amethysts, and the dripping diamonds make the pieces lively and interesting.
This amethyst and diamond parure was listed in Sotheby’s May 2008 Magnificent Jewels auction. All images and info are thanks to Sotheby’s.
