EDWARDIAN BLUE WHITE PASTE SILVER PENDANT CIRCA 1910
This lovely Edwardian Paste pendant is all Sterling Silver, Circa 1910.
Set with a rich Paste blue stone in the centre surrounded by old cut white Paste stones.
The sparkling Paste stones glisten and shimmer like real Diamonds but at a fraction of the price.
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.
This pendant looks fabulous when worn.

It measures 50mm in length including the bale x 27mm in across.
The blue Paste stone measures 6mm across x 9mm down

In very good condition all round.
