This pretty little Silver Paste heart pendant is a genuine Victorian piece, circa 1850, and is one of the sweetest and most versatile items of antique jewellery we have in our collection! It's dainty, sparkly and full of romantic antique charm!
It's just under 3cm just from the sparkle-encrusted bale to the bottom of the heart so is the perfect size for everyday wear.
The back of the bale is designed in such a way that it can be slipped on and off with ease, so if you're the creative kind you can alter it from a stunning pendant to a charming brooch or bracelet in a matter of seconds.
This pretty little heart has been embellished with countless sparkling white Paste gemstones, and a stunning duck egg blue Turquoise in the centre.
An extremely rare and collectible piece of early Victorian jewellery.

A beautiful little antique silver Paste heart pendant in excellent condition. The decorative Paste-set bale is original to the pendant and is also antique, and in superb ready to wear condition. All of the gemstones are secure and of excellent quality, with no chips or cracks. The Pastes gemstones still have a good attractive sparkle to them, although it's worth mentioning they have some light surface abrasions under a magnifier but for an item of this age we think she's amazing!
