This fabulous Georgian Paste & Natural Pearl pendant is a magical piece of antique jewellery...
Circa 1800 and crafted from the finest materials available at the time, this beautiful pendant is big, bold and beautiful! It features a huge (16 x 13mm) Paste gemstone at its centre of the most scrumptious rasberry colour, cradled in a nest of rare natural Pearls and warm 9ct Rose Gold.
If we were to design a colour-scheme of dreams this would be it! The combination is divine!
It's difficult to describe the fabulous Paste centre or to do it justice with words. As with so many antique jewels you really need to see it to believe its splendour; but it ranges from flashes of pale peach (the colour of Padparadscha) to strawberry and sometimes purple, the foiled back adding to its lively character.
If you love Georgian jewellery and have a penchant for Paste this pendant may be hard to resist!
We've added a solid 9ct Rose Gold chain so it can be worn or gifted straight away but pease get in touch if you'd prefer to use your own chain.

This phenomenal Georgian Paste & natural Pearl pendant is in splendid condition and is ready to be worn and enjoyed. Once a large Georgian brooch, this piece has been beautifully re-imagined into a pendant and is sure to be worn often in its current state. The conversion has been done tastefully and sympathetically, and we can still see the beautiful, round "button-back" that we all love so much in Georgian jewellery.
The Paste is absolutely huge and in near perfect condition with no chips or cracks and the foil is still intact; giving the pendant a luminous peach-to-pink-to-purple glow which is just magnificent! With an eyeglass you can see one or two very light surface scratches but we are being incredibly picky here.
The Pearls have some wear commensurate with age but they all appear to be original, and all have retained a beautiful lustre. Some have good nacre coverage and some a little more wear and they vary subtly in colour from cream to gold to pale Silver.
Al in all this is a highly prized and coveted piece of Georgian jewellery that wouldn't be out of place in a museum. It's aged with grace and has a solid construction so can be worn and enjoyed without a worry.
*Take care to avoid water and any chemicals or make-up that could degrade the Pearls. Paste and water definitely do not mix so remember to take it off to shower or bathe. Treated with care this amazing Georgian pendant has at least a few more lifetimes of joy to give!
