It's hard to find the words to describe the sheer beauty of this 15ct Gold Georgian flat-cut Garnet pansy riviere necklace!

In fact, it's not just a necklace, but a "demi-parure"; consisting of riviere necklace, detachable flat-cut garnet cross, and a charming brooch in solid 15ct Gold .. all wrapped up in the original Georgian fitted jewellery case!

This riviere necklace is a fine quality piece, crafted from berry-red Garnets (foiled to enhance their luminosity), that simply ooze seduction! The traditional pansy motifs symbolising love and romance.

Her plethora of pansies frame your neckline perfectly, and the cross that falls gracefully against your décolletage may be detached and completely removed at a whim to suit your mood. 

The pretty little brooch's flowers pairs to perfection with the necklace in colour and style; each stone being hugged in antique pie-crust settings. Affix to your jacket lapel and you're sure to spark conversation wherever you go!

The finishing touch to this undeniably sophisticated Georgian jewellery set is her matching current red jewellery box, that sees her necklace and brooch lay perfectly inside! A delightful home for your Georgian jewels that will sit prettily upon your dressings table!

Condition:

VERY GOOD. This Georgian 15ct Gold Garnet necklace brooch demi-parure is in very good condition throughout! Each and every Garnet throughout is securely nestled within their antique settings, with only very minor surface wear commensurate with age. There is a pin prick hole to the back of one of her pansies, however, this cannot be seen when worn. Each of her pansies are firmly interlinked to each oval Garnet and the tongue clasp shuts securely.

The brooch is in a similar condition to the necklace, keeping the demi-parure consistent. There is a light patina to the Gold in the grooves and minimal surface wear, but this cannot be seen when worn. Due to the grand age of both pieces, they need to be handled with care and must not get wet as due to their closed back settings as this will damage the stones. 

The box's leather has signs of wear around her edges. This is from where she has been handled over the years and she cannot be closed as she is missing her hoop for the hook to link into, but never the less, she is incredibly beautiful and makes for a a great display. We are always amazed by the craftsmanship from the Georgian era, and this demi-parure certainly does not disappoint!
