Now this one's rather special... We're delighted to welcome this impeccable Georgian Recency Era 15ct Gold cannetille Citrine riviere necklace to our collection. Steeped in history, this Georgian wonder boasts twenty Citrines, each with a glorious sunshine yellow hue, and totalling a staggering 56.59ct.
At over 200 years old, this opulent piece is in immaculate condition. With each dazzling gemstone encased in ornate 15ct Gold claw settings. Nestled between each Citrine, is a link made up of sweet Cannetille flowers, a technique whereby delicate Gold thread is twisted into place to form sweet and complex details. This level of craftsmanship is incredible, and makes this piece truly covetable.
Riviere necklaces were immensely popular during the Regency era, and were thus named after the way they elegantly cascade over the collarbones, flowing like a river. We can just imagine this mesmerising piece dancing through ballrooms, twinkling in the candlelight. With a long history behind her, you won't be able to resist being part of this piece's future!
