Early paste is a beautiful thing to behold. Made to mimic diamonds by candlelight, it was so popular when it first came into being that the jewelry wasn’t that much less expensive than it’s diamond cousins.
This piece of paste jewelry is particularly beguiling. Hand crafted in France in about 1820, this early cross drips with sparkly goodness. The pendant measures 67.8 mm from top to bottom and 32.7 mm across, it is closed backed and marked with the French boar’s head mark for silver as well as a French makers mark. This gorgeous pendant weighs 11 grams.
The hand cut, black dot pastes glitter and sparkle, so much like the real thing that most viewers will be completely fooled. I’ll never tell, and neither should you!
