VictorianCitrine Rivièrewith Pendant Cross

$4,500

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.
