This remarkable Victorian paste brooch is gorgeous! All of the paste stones are present and intact, and have a beautiful and subtle sparkle that is both mysterious and sophisticated. The Silver shows a gorgeous, deep, almost black patina which compliments the Paste beautifully, and the pin brooch works perfectly. The Paste gems do show some signs of light wear on close inspection and vary in colour, with the stones in the outer "halo" the darkest. The central Paste may or may not be a replacement.
