A Large Silver Paste Cross



crafted by ninteenth century artisans, made from brilliantly foiled back clear paste stones and one single central red paste stone, in the style of diamonds and a ruby, and backed by sterling silver. Paste jewellery was admired and collected by high society because of its beauty and resemblance to diamonds. Today, it is still appreciated for the same reason. Striking when worn hung from a silver chain.
