that they liked and give them the history and any of the jewelry’s “story” that I was able to determine.
Karma works because I asked Steve from Pampilonia if he had time for a broke blog writer. He kindly let me see and take pictures of a few beautiful pieces for this blog.
You know that I love jewelry from the Georgian era. This is no exception. I think I can just sniff them out and zero in on them- like the Jewelry Force is with me- so I will start with this stunning amethyst necklace.
Georgian Riviere necklaces are the exception to this “disco ball” rule. These kinds of necklaces were made with an open back and no foil behind the stone. They are historically significant because gem cutters were relying on new faceting techniques on backs of the gems for light return rather than the foil traditionally used. This necklace is a later, spin-off version of the Riviere Necklace.
