Item : Early Victorian Riviere Necklace W/ Amethyst Paste 'Stones'

Origin : English , Circa 1840

Marks : None

Materials : Sterling Silver & Amethyst Paste 'Stones'

Size : 15 & 3/4" Long , ...... Non-graduated , each 'pillow' measures about 1/2" X 1/4" .

Condition : Excellent, ...... Consistent with appropriate age and wear.

Comments : Many would date this antique necklace to the Georgian Period which officially ended in 1837 with the crowning of Queen Victoria . All things considered, I believe this necklace dates more accurately from the early Victorian Period, circa 1840 ish. ...... All handmade and if you look carefully you can see tiny marks from the jeweler's tool made to crimp the silver housings around the paste 'stones' . ...... 15 & 1/2 long with a simple hook closure , comprised of twenty-two puffed oval sterling silver pillows linked together. No doubt foiled behind each 'stone', creating a depth of intense purple color . ......

As always delivered to you in a new velvet gift box ready to give or keep. ......
