A beautiful Georgian Pinchbeck and green paste necklace. Paste is literally a leaded glass which has been fired and infused with colour to imitate emeralds. It was foiled at the back to give a translucent effect. Emeralds were scarce and highly expensive in the 1800s so this type of necklace was an alternative. These pieces are highly collectable today as they are not only scarce but look fantastic when worn.
