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 Victorian rivière features sizable oval faceted citrines in au jour settings. The necklace measures 15" with a discreet hidden clasp.
