A gorgeous late Georgian amethyst rivière. It’s longer than some with a wearable length of 16.25 inches.

The faceted gemstones are set in silver with deeply rounded nine-carat gold backs. All 28 are original and intensely coloured.

The pink foil backings have remained intact, giving the amethysts an even and vibrant magenta glow.

With no oxidisation to the foil the stones have remained as bright as the day this magnificent necklace was made.


• Handmade in nine-carat gold with silver top settings
• 28 foiled amethysts
• Approximately 16.25 inches (40.1cm) long
• Weight is 42.1 grams
• In excellent antique condition: there’s no discolouration of the foil

Note: the garnet rivière in one of the photos has sold.

I’d be very happy to send more information and images. Layaway available.
