Albert said the collection once belonged to the Countess Rivieré, 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 set. And so will you. Once you give these earrings of brilliant white fire to your own lady, 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 $9,000 heirloom into a spectacular 4 1/2-total carat earrings.
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-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 originals were gorgeous pieces 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 versions for much less.
The new science of romance. Our lush Rivieré Earrings boast 4 1/2-total carats of the Ultimate Diamond Alternative™, 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.
