This is a wonderful early 1800's Dutch silver rivière of individual beaded-edge rosette mountings which have been closed-back set with 23 rose-cut diamond paste stones.

Each stone is bright, and the silver foils are quite clean.

The clasp matches the mounted stones, and is set in a higher collet so that it may house the tongue for closure.

The necklace currently measures 15", each rosette is 12 mm in diameter, and the rose-cuts are 7 mm.

Each of the mountings is hallmarked.

This is a glorious silver rose-cut rivière!
