This beautiful Edwardian Silver Paste pendant consists of two rows of gleaming Paste (or "Strass") gems around a pretty filigree centre, with a delicate sparkly lavalier drop.
The dark patina of the Silver has a lovely contrast against the sparkling Paste, (which we love!) although we could easily polish the pendant to a high shine Silver if you prefer your jewellery to look as new.
(And if this is the case please don't hesitate to ask.)
It would make a gorgeous gift no matter the occasion, but personally we think it would make a fantastic wedding gif!- either for the blushing bride herself or a beloved Maid of Honour or bridesmaid. It's something that could be worn on the special day itself, as well as enjoyed all year round.
It's set in hallmarked "800" Sterling Silver with countless hand-cut and hand-polished Paste gemstones that shine just like Diamonds.
The chain pictured is not included, but one can be added to your order on request.

VERY GOOD: There's not much to report here as this beautiful Edwardian Silver paste pendant is very much ready to be worn and enjoyed. The Pastes have a glorious fire and radiance to them which is really lovely against the dark patina of the Silver, and there are no darkened stones. It looks like the back may have once been gilded with yellow or rose gold, but this has since been faded. One of the Paste gems has a small chip which can be seen with a x10 magnification loupe, but to the eye she looks gorgeous.They sparkle beautifully bright and look fabulous in all lighting conditions.
