A superb Victorian Garnet Paste bracelet just exuding antique charm!
Thirteen crimson Paste gemstones catch the light beautifully sending bright shimmers across their foiled backings. Ornately embossed pinchbeck settings proudly display the striking gemstones adding to their undeniably regal appearance.
Pinchbeck was often used in place of Gold, as a more affordable material it allowed people to wear superb jewellery without the fear of too great a loss as thieves were rife during the Victorian era.
