GeorgianGarnetRivière

$4,500

The rivière - one of the most popular and enduring styles of necklace to come out of the Georgian period - features an endless line of matched or graduated gems set within inconspicuous collets. The necklaces supposedly take their name from the French Riviera: it is said that the lights along the coastline resembled a dazzling necklace when viewed from the sea. This late Georgian rivière features subtly graduated round garnets in crimped collets with closed and foiled backs. The necklace tests as 10k gold and measures 15" with a discreet hidden clasp.
