Georgian Paste Collet Set Teardrop Necklace
A beautiful teardrop shaped pendant with 11 sparkling rose cut paste stones collet set into sterling silver, and with a reverse of solid 9ct gold. Paste was used in place of diamonds as an imitation, and has become highly collectible due to the craftmanship required to create these gemstones and the beautiful jewellery as a result .
The central teadrop swings freely from the teardrop halo frame, giving this necklace great movement and oppurtunity to glitter in the light .
Setting the paste stones into silver enhances the colour and gives a more white appearance as was often desired over yellow, and paired with the 9ct gold reverse keeps the piece feeling like a luxurious well made item of jewellery.
* 9ct gold chain included *
