Stunning French Paste Georgian Necklace
This is a truly stunning georgian paste necklace circa 1790. Set into silver closed back, fully marked with gold highlight decoration. No pastes missing.
The loops on the ends carry french silver marks. The back velvet is not original. The two rings where the fastening loops are attached to the necklace each one has a small gap to allow them to be removed, at first I thought it was damage but it is quite usual for jewellery of this age to have multiple uses.
Sorry to repeat myself its stunning!!!!!
Length 33.5 cm central larger paste is 2.4 cm x 1.8 cm circular pastes are 1.5 cm diameter. The pastes with the gold decoration 1.5 cm x 1.2 cm loops 1 cm.
