The diamond riviere is a classic form which is simple, yet extremely effective as a jewellery art piece. Flawless round diamonds have almost become standard expectations at auctions, particularly in Asia by the most discerning collectors. The presentation of the first ever flawless round D colour Internally Flawless rivière at auction at Sotheby’s Hong Kong in 2010 has seen this classicism evolve into almost iconic expression.
This spectacular necklace incorporates almost nonchalantly a 10.51-carat D colour Internally Flawless Type IIa diamond as part of its graduating pattern of flawless perfection.
The simplicity of form itself is an expressive reflection of the wearer. Flattering, yet never over-powering, this subtle and sublime row of 17 flawless diamonds is pure feminine elegance.
