Let yourself be transported back to a time of decadent parties and masked balls, when gentlemen wore top hats and women dressed in the most exquisite gowns crafted from only the finest fabrics. A snippet of glimmering gemstones from that bygone era appears in our possession today in the form of this spectacular Georgian Rock Crystal rivière necklace.
The rarest piece of antique jewellery we have in our current collection, she is sure to make a very fine addition to one lucky lady's collection. Just imagine her expertly faceted exterior catching the candlelight and gracefully twinkling across your collarbones just as she would have done many moons ago.

EXCELLENT: A Georgian Rock Crystal rivière necklace offered in fantastic antique condition, sparkling just as fiercely today as when she was created over two centuries ago! It's such a rare treat to be able to behold a piece of Georgian jewellery this old in such fine condition. The settings are all present holding the Rock Crystals securely in place, and the chain is immaculate holding the necklace firmly around your neck.
There is some light yellowing to a couple of the foiled backings, however we feel this just adds to her antique charm and is a very minor imperfection for a piece of jewellery this old. A rare collector's piece yearning to be worn and enjoyed for many more years to come.
