GRAFF THE RIVIÈRE
Named for how it flows around the neck like a shimmering river of gems, the rivière is a short, vintage style that ranges from 14 to 16 inches. The defining trait is the gradation in the size of the stones, which are always similar in shape but start with the largest at the front and end with the smallest at the nape of the neck. Diamonds are overwhelmingly featured for this style, as they create the most scintillation. In fact, the rivière exploded in popularity following the discovery of the Kimberley Mine that increased the world’s supply of diamonds. Channelling Old World refinement is this Graff necklace showcasing exquisite pear-shaped yellow and white diamonds weighing 57.34 carats.
