Albert said the bracelet once belonged to the Countess Riviere, a regular in his Paris jewelry 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
Of course, Albert didn’t recall what Madame Riviere was the Countess of, or what happened to her after she stopped visiting his tiny shop on the Rue Saint-Honore. But he still misses her terribly. And his story almost compelled me to buy the necklace. 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 Riviere 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 movement triggers a light show like you’ve never seen. More color and fire than a “D” flawless diamond, our exclusive lab-created DiamondAura jewelry includes all of the classic specifications, including color, clarity, cut and carat weight and is hard enough to cut glass.
