What is Married Jewelry — Married Jewelry Set




When speaking of jewelry, a “married set” is a group of jewelry of very similar style that have been put together to wear as a set. In my experience, married sets are put together by original owners who could not find exact matches but maybe found similar jewelry over the years and then chose to wear it together. The amber glass set above is a great example of a married set. For example, the large pearls on each piece are not the same shape and they should be, if the set were truly a real match.

This set is available in my eBay store “MidCentury Jewelry”.

I run into a lot of 1976 era patriotic jewelry. Some of it is pretty whimsical. The 1976 lariat is in the shape of the state of Arizona.

The enamel Flag necklace can be found at eBay store “Orphaned Items”. Check out the owner’s video on the home page. stores.shop.ebay.com/Orphaned-Items__W0QQ_armrsZ1.com
