We think that this Victorian Paste Silver cross pendant is a very special necklace indeed here at Lillicoco!
Although a cross pendant isn't unusual to come across in antique jewellery, the topaz coloured pale, ice like Paste sets this pendant apart from the rest.
The masterfully hand-cut Paste glitters ice blue sparkles that compete with the morning frost when the sun hits just right... crystal clear!
The closed back setting just amplifies and strengthens the brightness of the Paste tenfolds, perfectly contrasting the Silver against the pastel blue hues.
What a perfect way to interpret the "something old, something blue" saying for your special day!?

EXCELLENT: This Victorian Paste Silver cross pendant is in excellent condition. The white Paste and topaz Paste has endless sparkles that compete with any Diamond it's trying to mimic. The Sterling Silver setting and framework is sturdy and smooth, holding in the gemstones wonderfully. This necklace has been loved and worn so has very minor signs of wear on the back which just adds to its beautiful charm. The Silver chain is lovely and long which looks fantastic with the length of the pendant, ready to wear straight out the box if you so desire!
