This pretty Silver Paste heart charm pendant is a genuine piece of Victorian jewellery, circa 1850, and is one of the cutest and most versatile items of antique jewellery we have in our collection! It's dainty, sparkly and full of romantic antique charm!
Measuring just 2cm long from the sparkle-encrusted bale to the bottom of the heart it's 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 being worn a stunning pendant or on a quirky charm bracelet in a matter of seconds.
This pretty little heart has been embellished with 15 individually cut and hand-set Diamond-like Paste gemstones and a stunning duck egg blue natural Turquoise centre. We've added an 18" solid Silver trace chain so it can be worn and enjoyed straight away!
