An exquisite Georgian Paste pendant which has been taken excellent care of over the last two centuries to give you the rare opportunity to own your very own piece of antique jewellery. It's a rare occasion to come across a piece of jewellery of this age in such outstanding condition.
If you look closely at the Pastes you can just about make out the faint markings from the black dots which would have been handpainted to imitate the cullet settings of a Diamond. Pastes were often more highly regarded by some during the Georgian era, and when you come across a magnificent piece like this it's easy to understand why!
With a green Paste held in the heart of this pendant adding a splash of colour, combined with the gem encrusted bale this is a truly tasteful piece of Georgian jewellery just exuding antique charm.
