This superb Edwardian pendant is a special, one-of-a-kind piece, and comes with the original antique Silver chain. It' made with pretty white paste stones that sparkle just like Diamonds, and a vibrant flash of green that rivals the very best Columbian Emeralds.
The Emerald green paste is beautifully clear and vibrant- sure to make your friends green with envy!
“Paste” is a type of a leaded glass that was the painstakingly cut & polished until it appeared to shimmer like a diamond in the light. Invented in 1724 by French jeweller Georges Frédéric Strass, it was an instant hit with Parisian high society & continues to be highly sought after today.
The beautifully designed closed backed gallery and fine workmanship is typical of antique jewellery. And it's this delicate, lace-like appearance and floral motif that we know and love as typically Edwardian.
The centre-piece, the gem-set bale, and the sweet dangle drop are free to sway as you move- giving the piece a lovely life and fire about it. It really is a unique item, offered in exceptional antique condition.
A gorgeous gift or a well-deserved treat...
