Paste is a special type of hand cut glass which has been used since the 18th century to replicate Gemstones. Here the Paste stones sparkle just like Diamonds. Antique jewellers often set stones in closed back settings, just like these earrings. This is to allow foil backings under the Paste gems to enhance their scintillation by candlelight.Please note - If you'd prefer the screw back fastenings to be converted to ear wires or another type of fastening please don't hesitate to get in touch, this can be done very easily. These earrings are a stunning fine piece of history which would make a great addition to any collection. Measure 2cm across widest part. Orders placed by 12pm (GMT) will be dispatched the same day - All items are posted in a professional jewellery presentation box.
