An unusual early 19th century silver rivière set with bright rose cut paste and stamped with Dutch hallmarks. The little pear-shaped pendant paste features a different style of bezel and a gold-washed back. It was undoubtably added to the necklace later (though was made around the same time) but we've left it in place because it adds a nice finishing touch. For the purists out there, never fear, it can easily be removed.
