SWEET PASTE HEART ( Georgian Jewelry Locket / Pendant ): Fashion changed dramatically at the turn of the 19th Century when Napoleon’s First Empire held sway. Filmy, high waisted and draped Grecian-style dress required jewelry of more delicacy. (c. 1800-20) Paste jewels, such as this dainty heart locket, were prized in their own right. Tiny paste stones surround the crystal heart shape - topped by a tiny bow accented with paste jewels. The heart shape crystal is framed in 9KT gold. The silver compartment opens from the back for your own sentimental token. A tiny treasure meant to be personalized by you. An enchanting bride’s gift – “something old”. Condition: Excellent. The hinge is tight and snaps closed easily. Crystal heart shows very little wear. Size: 1” high, (not counting oval ring), 3/4” wide.
