How pretty is this Georgian paste cross pendant? A divine piece featuring unique black dot paste gems, this pendant is resplendent in Georgian romantic and gothic glamour.
If you have a loved one who is looking for religious jewellery, or they have a penchant for rare Georgian pieces, then this piece is perfect! Paste jewellery was incredibly popular during the Georgian period, with monarchs like Marie Antoinette wearing it regularly. Requiring a high level of skill, the fashion surrounding paste did not last past the19th century, meaning that these pieces are rare to find!
What's more black dot paste, as present here in this cross is even rarer! Black dot paste was used to mimic the culet of early Diamond cuts, a hallmark of a fine quality piece of jewellery. Glittering against the skin, this pendant would look perfect with a complimentary antique chain.

VERY GOOD: This Georgian paste cross pendant is in fantastic condition considering its age! The paste gemstones sparkle in all lighting conditions, as well as being securely set.

There is minor wear to the paste as you might expect of an original Georgian cross, but she's still full of life and charm!
