Cassandra's Riviere design is inspired on the classic Riviere style necklace typical of the Georgian Era ( 1714-1837) in England, but with a twist..... The stones in her design are set with a triple claw setting allowing the maximum light to shine through the stones and with a bold clean gallery bringing a modernity to the designs for necklaces, earrings, bracelets and the Riviere Tiara. From the Journey to Scandinavia.
Riviere Poires necklace in 9ct white gold set with forty four round facetted pale blue topaz 185cts. and nine blue topaz drops 45cts. with a central diamond and an adjustable clasp. The necklace measures approximately 16'' in length, adjustable to 18''.
Cassandra herself designs all her jewels and works closely with her stone cutters and craftsmen throughout the process from design through to creation including on her bespoke projects.
Ever in search of the unusual and rare, Cassandra travels the world to source beautiful gemstones, either in the rough or cut form.
The craftsman works as an artist recreating the design in metal. The jewel is then mounted, assayed, polished and set.
