The Riviera.

The English invented it. The French named it.

different Tennis bracelets

The Riviere is the classic among diamond bracelets. “Rivière” is the French word for “river” - a flowing line of diamonds. In the United States, this range of jewellery has been known as the “tennis bracelet” ever since the day when Chris Evert’s beloved diamond bracelet f lew off her wrist and onto the court during an important tennis match. The quality of a Riviere’s craftsmanship is evident in its typical rolling movement, which prevents the bracelet from twisting sideways. A Riviere is forever. Few other jewellery pieces are simultaneously as modern and as timeless, as sporty and as elegant as a Riviere from Wempe. Rivieres easily combine with other pieces of jewellery. A Riviere’s fascinating aura enhances the style of the woman who wears it.

Rivieres are available with different kinds of settings and various colours of gold. The Renaissance line highlights the elegance of the prong setting, The sporty Moonriver line relies on the bezel setting, which surrounds each gemstone with a band of metal. Cool white gold accentuates the brilliance of the diamonds; yellow gold radiates warmth holding each brilliant-cut diamond at four points. The Riviere to match the wristwatch, complemented by earrings and a solitaire ring from our Renaissance line. Rivieres with bezel settings in the Moonriver line harmonise with a solitaire ring and a solitaire pendant. Would you like to learn more about the ideal combination between jewellery and Rivieres? We will be happy to advise you.
