This antique Georgian Queen Anne Garnet Paste pendants a must for any avid Georgian jewellery collector! Ripe with splendour, this pendant boasts berry red Paste gems that rival the most delectable natural Garnets... in fact this Paste is even better!
Dating back to the mid 18th Century, circa 1750, this pendant has been crafted from Pinchbeck, an alloy that resembles the bright lustre of Gold, and is highly collectable.
We adore the pear shape of this pretty piece, inspired by Halley's comet, (perhaps in 1759?). It is elegant, beautiful and extremely rare.

GOOD TO VERY GOOD. This antique Georgian Queen Anne Garnet Paste pendant is in good to very good condition. The front of the piece is gorgeous, with pretty faceted Paste gems. Some of the gems have lost their exuberant brightness and sparkle, but for a Georgian piece of this age she is sublime. The back of the piece has some sign of wear, but again this is commensurate with age, she is approximately 270 years old!
This pendant used to be a brooch, and the c-clasp has been used as a hasp, but the jump rings are all securely attached so you can wear this piece of Georgian jewellery with utmost confidence.
