Story

Georgian jewelry is perhaps some of the most beautifully crafted of all time. Whether incorporating precious gems, paste or a combination, the time, effort and focus that was put into the piece was the same. In fact, it was more difficult for the jewelers of the era to cut the softer material of paste than diamonds.

Superb and all original, this 18th century pendant is designed in the shape of a cross. The very scarce hue of red paste stones, almost cerise with a vivid and electric pink-red sparkle, have been mounted with rub over collets and set into silver gilt with deep bulbous backs so characteristic of Georgian jewelry. The color remains exceeding intense, bright and strong in all the stones. All of the pastes are oval in shape with the exception of the round central paste and bale which has been mounted in a silver saw-tooth design setting. The reverse displays typical construction of the era with the pin holding in the central element.
