Victorian Paste Heart Pendant & Chain

This item is unavailable
SKU: 1627


This beautiful Silver Paste heart pendant is a genuine antique Victorian piece, circa 1900. 

“Paste” or "Strass" is a special type of hard flint glass invented in 1724. It was skillfully cut & polished by hand until it appeared to glitter like Diamonds in the light and was an instant hit with the high society!

Paste is really a charming and beautiful material and continues to be highly sought after today.

This pretty little heart has been embellished with 25 individually cut and hand-set Paste gemstones that twinkle beautifully as you move! The Silver setting has darkened slightly with age which gives the paste gemstones a lovely contrast to shine out from and it's a great wearable size.

It looks stunning worn on a simple Silver chain or velvet as a necklace, or could be fitted to a cherished charm bracelet. 

A unique and memorable romantic gift... perhaps even a wedding gift?

The pendant comes with the 18" vintage Silver chain pictured.

ERA:  Victorian c.1900

MEASUREMENTS: 13mm tall (not inc. bale) x 13mm at widest point x 5mm deep.

CONDITION:  Excellent
This gorgeous antique Paste heart pendant is in perfect antique condition. All of the Paste stones are original and are secure in their settings and completely chip-free. Unlike a lot of antique Pastes that dis-colours and turns dark  or brown these have retained a bright Diamond-like fire and sparkle. As you might expect of a 200 year old piece of jewellery there are some light signs of wear on the facet edges with a x10 magnification loupe, but to the eye they are simply a beautiful thing to behold! It will make a very thoughtful gift or new addition to your jewellery box.
