Why buy from us

And we've been trading since 2019 with hundreds of satisfied customers.

This demi-parure (half-set in French) consists of a rivière necklace, earrings and a detachable pendant/brooch. Rivière, French for river refers to the generous river of gems that gradually increase in size towards the largest centre stone. These kind of necklaces rose in popularity in the 1700s, this particular one is made of paste, an imitation stone, made from high-lead content glass and a firm favourite of Georgian society, certain colours ascertaining superiority. Innovation in jewellery design meant that many pieces of jewellery could often be worn in more than one way. For example, necklaces could be adjusted to be worn as bracelets and pendants were detachable so that they could be converted into brooches and worn on one's chest, all for the sake of versatility. The handmade Georgian examples are considered to be the most collectible because of their pristine craftsmanship, historical techniques and wonderful colours.
