The Habsburg Peridot Parure

This impressive parure is a rarity as it uses peridot, a semi-precious stone that can be found in jewelry from as far back the early 2nd millennium B.C.. Peridot comes in shades of green ranging from a vivid yellowish/olive green to a brownish green. The Habsburg Parure features a selection of exceptional peridots with few inclusions, huge size, excellent cut, and a deep olive color. The diamond and peridot parure consists of a large tiara, earrings, 2 brooches, a devant de corsage, and a necklace with seven pendents. These pendents can be removed and attached to the tiara as uprights.
