Directors Notes

The rivière necklace was an extremely popular design in the 18th and 19th centuries and was made in either diamonds or coloured stones, in both uniform and graduated rows. The name translates literally as ‘river’ which perfectly alludes to the way these fluid rows of stones would ripple around the base of the throat when worn. They were a favourite with Royalty and courtiers both in Europe and further afield and were often worn in multiples to emphasise wealth and status.
