This spectacular antique Silver Paste heart pendant is by far one of our favourite pieces of jewellery at the moment!
Like the "Heart of the Ocean" in the blockbuster Titanic, this regal gem is both spell-binding and extremely rare... Made during the late Georgian to early Victorian era, it's made from precious blue and white Paste gemstones that sparkle just like Diamonds.
Have you ever seen a more beautiful and romantic piece of antique Paste jewellery?!
The top of the pendant has a large oval cut royal blue Paste, set sideways which is unusual, and from it suspends a most rare and splendid specimen... a flaming heart!
Highly sought after and considered a rarity, (even among collectors!) a flaming heart or "crowned heart" is considered extremely auspicious. The flame or crown is said to represent a heart burning with an intense love.
The perfect romantic gift for any occasion, or simply because you love it!
