Story

Jewelry people “in the know” recognize the importance that paste (glass) jewelry has in the annals of the history of jewelry. During the Georgian and just prior era paste was worn by the wealthy and appreciated for its unique beauty and craftsmanship. Not limited to the 18th century, Roman artisans of antiquity knew that paste stones had much of the allure, splendor and brilliance possessed by actual gems. In addition, of course no talk of paste would be complete without the mention of the doyenne Coco Chanel whose use of paste in her creations caused virtual riots by people demanding pieces of her collection of “cocktail jewelry”.

This of Art Deco era earrings personifies several of the cardinal signs of that style. Crafted in cool as ice silver, a modified oval with a graduating tapered perimeter is set with a series of graduated in size round clear pastes. Bifurcating the ovoid form is a deep blue square cut paste floating on a narrow vertical band of silver. A beautifully crafted clear white paste baguette is the surmount suspending a round clear paste which attaches to the pendant element. The lovely articulated three-element earring responds in sweet harmony to your every movement.

Date: Circa 1920.
