NOTE: * A rivière necklace is composed of gemstones of the same species, that are either all the same size and shape or graduate subtly in size. Historically such settings were separate collets and the mid-eighteenth century saw the popularity of conjoining such settings with cord or ribbon. Classically rivières are designs with little to no ornamentation to allow the gemstone to be the feature of the piece.
Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone.
