A rare English Georgian green paste necklace made circa 1780-1800. The mounts are base metal which was quite common especially when a necklace was set with paste. Beautiful examples in good condition of the period are hard to source. The faceted green pastes were to imitate the extremely expensive Columbian emeralds that were just being imported along with Brazilian amethysts from the South Americas.
