Popular since the eighteenth century, there is nothing quite like the diamond Riviere necklace. Riviere necklaces are simple yet regal, recalling the candlelit ballrooms of a bygone era while still completely wearable in the modern world. This necklace was created in around 1880. Featuring fifty-six lively and fiery diamonds graduating in size, this necklace would be just as at home at a Victorian ball as it would a modern evening event. Statement-making yet incredibly versatile, this necklace also features a small hidden link inside the largest central diamond, from which can be suspended a pendant for an even more dramatic look.
