If there was something that the Georgians seem to have specifically wanted from their jewelry, it was luminosity, vibrance, and color, which was achieved through the ancient art of foiling. Foiling is a gemstone enhancement technique where a thin sheet of metal is placed behind the gemstone in order to reflect more light, and/or color, back into the stone and then toward the viewer, and was a very known theme in Georgian-era jewelry and beyond. 

An outstanding turn of the 19th Century example with a massive scale, this riviere features four different shapes of stones in different scales to create an incredibly harmonious graduation of shape and size, with a magnificent festoon garland. Circa 1810, this is one of the best we’ve ever had in what appears to be mint condition.
