We introduce the concept of Riesz-dual sequences for g-frames. In this paper we show that, for any sequence of operators, we can construct a corresponding sequence of operators with a kind of duality relation between them. This construction is used to prove duality principles in g-frame theory, which can be regarded as general versions of several well-known duality principles for frames. We also derive a simple characterization of a g-Riesz basic sequence as a g-R-dual sequence of a g-frame in the tight case.
