Georgian Paste Riviere
A sumptuous example of a Georgian paste riviere, circa 1820. The graduated riviere is silver and set with large and very bright colourless paste in cut-down, closed back settings. It is 15 and 1/3 inches long and the pastes graduate in size from 1/4 of an inch by 1/4 of an inch front centre to 1/3 of an inch by 1/3 of an inch next to the clasp. It is in its original fitted case with matching earrings and sits well on the neck. Immaculate condition.
