Paste is a heavy, very transparent flint glass that stimulates the fire and brilliance of gemstones because it has relatively high indices of refraction and strong dispersion, the Romans in particular were very skilful in the production of coloured glass pastes.
They sparkle just like Old Cut Diamonds, captivating the allure of natures beauty.
The earrings have been commissioned from an old necklace.
