We love everything about this Georgian black dot Paste Rivière necklace! This divine antique piece is splendorous and complete with all of her original Georgian components. Held in classic Georgian pie-crust settings, her 15" length is made up of a plethora of black dot Paste that will make your collarbones sparkle as she adorns your neck. 

Paste was an innovative new material first invented by Georges Frédéric Strass in the 1700s, as a way to emulate the beauty of real gemstones. Black dot paste was popular during the Georgian era and had a black dot painted on the back to mimic Diamond cutlets. 

Each black dot Paste is backed by domed, sun-kissed 9ct Gold making this antique Rivière necklace sit comfortably against your chest. Oozing Georgian grandeur, we are in awe of this necklace's antique beauty and her rich 200-year-old history.

With exquisite black dot Paste creating the feminine cluster formation on top of the slide clasp, there is nothing stopping you from making her the centre piece!

Condition

VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT. This Georgian Silver black dot Paste Rivière necklace is in wonderful condition. Each of the Paste gemstones are securely set into their traditional cullet settings, complete with 9ct Gold domed backs for comfortable wear. There is some slight discolouration to some of the foiling behind a few of the Paste gemstones and a few surface marks on some of the facets, but this is only noticeable under close inspection. The Silver has a lovely luster and her pie crust settings have accrued an admirable patina for a dramatic finish. The tongue clasp is in perfect working order so you can wear her confidently whatever the occasion. Over 200 years old, we can't quite believe the incredible condition this Georgian nekclace is in, a rare find for sure!
