Albert said the piece once belonged to the Countess Rivieré, a regular
in his Paris jewellery shop. “She wore diamonds like no woman I’ve
ever seen,” he said. “Every one of these stones sparkles less in her
absence.” We never met her, but we still fell in love with her bracelet.
And so will you. Once you snap this band of brilliant white fire around
your own lady’s wrist, it will look (and feel) like she just inherited a
fortune. But the only fortunes involved are the one you saved and
our good fortune finding a designer talented enough to transform
a £49,000 heirloom into the spectacular 51-carat lab-created
DiamondAura ® Rivieré 18” Necklace. Of course, Albert didn’t recall
what Madame Rivieré was the Countess of, or what happened to her after she stopped visiting his tiny shop on the Rue Saint-Honoré.
But he still misses her terribly. And his story almost compelled me
to buy the bracelet. Almost. I say almost because vintage white
diamonds don’t come cheap. The Countess’s original was a gorgeous piece with the kind of flash that surely sparked whispers and stares back in her day. But I knew we could use science to create a bolder, more beautiful version for much less. The new science of romance. Our lush DiamondAura Rivieré 18” Necklace boasts more than 51 carats of brilliant, lab-created DiamondAura set in .925 sterling silver. Faceted white ovals alternate with sparkling rounds to deliver an
unbelievable amount of fire. Even the slightest twist of the wrist
triggers a light show like you’ve never seen. More colour and fire than a “D” flawless diamond, our exclusive lab-created DiamondAura jewellery includes all of the classic specifications, including colour, clarity, cut and carat weight and is hard enough to cut glass.
