SKU: 1575


This stunning Victorian Silver Paste brooch features row upon row of gorgeous, Diamond-like gems in a dazzling 10 armed star design. By far and away one of our favourite brooches in the collection the moment, it's the largest brooch of its kind that we've ever seen, and offered in exceptional condition!

Made in the 1800's, this piece exemplifies why we are so fascinated with antique jewellery today. It's unique, it's beautiful and the craftsmanship that went into making it is really mind-blowing!

Each Paste has been hand-cut and hand-finished individually, so when you peer at them long enough you'll realize they are all completely unique. We love the way they've been cut chunky, with high tables and steep edges to mimic beautiful old cut Diamonds.

Set against a deep and dark aged patina on the Silver the Pastes really catch your eye with a fierce sparkle, even in low-level lighting. It's the perfect accessory to take you from day to night in style.

This huge star is quite striking, with a dramatic three-dimensional shape. It's a fine brooch but would also convert well into a statement ring or a stellar necklace. 

This beautiful Victorian Silver Paste brooch would make a gorgeous and timeless gift for any occasion.

CONDITION:  Excellent
This remarkable Victorian paste brooch is absolutely beautiful! All of the paste stones are well matched and are incredibly bright and sparkly, with phenomenal white colouration and glittering scintillation. They really do look a million dollars!

The Paste gemstones are of exceptional quality and condition.
One of the smaller Paste gems on one of the lower "arms" has a slightly cloudier appearance, but this is not obvious unless you're looking or it.  The Silver is completely free from damage and shows a gorgeous, deep, almost black patina to the outer edges. The pin brooch works perfectly. Overall, this is a stunning example of the craftsmanship of the Victorian era that you can wear with pride.
