VERY GOOD: This Georgian Silver "Black Dot Paste" is in fantastic condition. There is some signs of ageing to this pendant, but considering that she is almost 200 years old this is easily forgiven! The lovely foiled gems dance in all lighting conditions, with the variety of colours akin to natural Diamonds. This pendant has been converted from a set of Georgian buttons, and even though there is a small sign of this on the back, it's been expertly performed. We love the fact that this button is ready to be worn again in the 21st century.
