This fabulous antique paste necklace has maintained its magnificent condition over the years. All the paste stones are present and only have minor discolouration due to age; however, they still have excellent sparkle as they catch the light. The exceptional metalwork remains in lovely condition. Fitted with its original box clasp, you can wear this confidently. It would be a wonderful addition to your antique jewellery collection.
