Victorian Black Dot Paste Star Brooch

Victorian Black Dot Paste Star Brooch

$850.00


Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1850

A striking antique star brooch set with the most wonderful black dot paste gemstones. It was made in the early Victorian era, circa 1850, at a time when paste gemstones were at the cutting edge of material technology - often commanding as much or more than the "real" gemstones they were emulating. These stones are particularly fine cushion cut examples; they're warm and bright, with vivid rainbow flashes of colour as they move in the light. Crafted in sterling silver throughout.
