A sensational early Victorian citrine rivère made all the more exceptional for having retained its original (and removable!) pendant cross. The juicy golden gems glitter in au jour prong settings. The tidy round nodes separating each stone of the necklace are echoed at the end of each arm of the cross.
Gilt silver, citrines
16.25" necklace length, 2 3/4" x 2" cross
1837 — 1901
The best “costume jewelry” during the Georgian era was pinchbeck, a top-secret formula that looked — and wore — just like gold.
