This superb antique Silver Paste heart pendant is absolutely gorgeous and full of authentic antique charm!

EXCELLENT: This stunning antique silver Paste heart pendant is in gorgeous condition for its age! The star-spangled heart and all its components are original and antique, and still in excellent ready to wear condition. All of the gemstones are secure and of excellent quality, with no chips or damage. The white Pastes all still have a good attractive bright colour, although they do vary very subtly. This is not very obvious when worn, in fact it's one of the finest we've seen. There are no dents or dings to the Silver, and the crimped edge is just perfect!
