Antique Green & White Paste Drop Earrings

A truly beautiful and very wearable pair of paste drop earrings. They really look like emeralds and diamonds and were made circa 1840. The amazing thing is that the green paste has flaws in it just like emeralds. These pieces are valued today because of their superior quality of workmanship.
