The "gemstones" were created using high flint content glass which was cut and faceted. The term for this style of gemstone is "French paste." The flint content of the glass creates the beautiful, deep sparkle - more sparkle than can be produced with plain glass. The high content leaded glass which is faceted to imitate diamonds or backed with colored foils to imitate other gemstones. Also known as Strass glass after Frederic Strass who invented this faux gemstone in the 18th Century
