VictorianOrange and Peach PasteNecklace

$1,295

Though made in non-precious materials - pinchbeck and paste - no detail was overlooked when this mid Victorian necklace was made. The vibrant old cut orangey-peach pastes (so colored to emulate the appearance of topaz) are set in lovely au jour crown settings with prettily embossed galleries and alternate between small and large.
