Story

Although the rivière necklace is quite simple in design—typically a single line of stones or elements without any additional ornamentation, it is one of the most sophisticated and classic items of jewelry perhaps of all time. Favored since the 1700s, the style continues to be in demand to this day.

Bridging the years of two fabulous eras for jewelry (Edwardian and Art Deco), this necklace of amethyst colored pastes displays that purity of line and simplicity of form so beloved for ages. Hand cut and faceted, oval pastes have been individually set within silver mounts and securely fastened together with “O” rings that enable sufficient play between pastes for a marvelous fluidity of movement. This simple rivière adornment for the neck remains timelessly elegant.
