What an exquisite representation of the design and style of the Victorian era this magnificent antique Silver Paste drop pendant necklace is!
The Victorians took pride in their expertly hand-cut Paste, considering it to be on par with the beauty of Diamonds. Cutting these stones took just as much skill as was needed for gemstones.
The Silver integral necklace links are all encrusted with the luxurious white Paste which shimmers brightly from within the Silver leaflike settings. The necklace has been foil-backed for extra sparkle!
The drop pendant is the shape of a peacock feather and is also filled with Paste, just in case there weren't enough for you on the necklace!
This Victorian necklace is a real showstopper, we cannot get over the sheer beauty of it! We hope you love her too!

EXCELLENT: This Antique Silver Paste drop pendant necklace is in absolutely wonderful condition. The Paste which covers the necklace has endless sparkle. It has obviously been looked after very well as there seem to be no issues with the hand-cut Paste, nor does it look stained or blackened which can sometimes happen with old-aged Paste. It's almost as if she's been locked away from the world for many years... The Silver design work is perfect and holding in the Paste very well indeed. The necklace fastening is in perfect working order. There is space for a safety chain to be added if you so desire, just say the word! This is an epic and utterly beautiful piece of history and we can't wait for you to wear her to show to the world!
