Antique Georgian Paste Silver Heart Pendant

Orignial Price: $750

New love is fun, it’s flirty and makes your heart race, every love song that comes on the radio seems written just for you. But old love, well, I have to tell you, that’s where it’s at. When you’ve seen this one person through all of life’s scarring moments, the physical ones and the ones of the heart. When you’ve had to wonder if you might lose them, when you’ve seen the true courage and strength at the core of them, well, you might not go weak kneed when they walk in the room, but this kind of love is a fierce and deep thing that becomes part of the very soul of you and makes you wonder how you could ever live without it.

This antique Georgian silver and paste heart pendant would make an excellent gift for that kind of love, or the new kind, because it’s pretty great, too. She’s a fancy, older gal with a lot of sparkle. Set with bright pastes and topped with a floral scroll, the pendant is closed backed and was handmade around 1800; most likely in England, which is where I found it. Overall, it measures 42mm long and 18.7mm across and it weighs 5.2 grams. It bears no marks and has been carefully acid tested.

Paste, or glass gemstones with strong dispersions of light, date back to at least Ancient Roman times when they would use colored glass to imitate emeralds and lapis lazuli. In the Georgian era, jewelry made with precious stones was coveted and flaunted. However, some would keep their prized possessions at home and wear a duplicate made of equally mesmerizing paste. It shimmered like diamonds and enchanted like sapphires. Of course, pastes were also a fashion all their own. Ladies would wear pastes as part of their evening jewelry sets.
