This lovely earring and pendant set are black dot pastes. They are set in lovely high grade tested 950 silver.

The pastes are just gorgeous and clear black dots are still present behind most of the hand cut paste. Paste is a mixture of glass and lead.. It is absolutely grand and most of my most prized antique pieces contain it. A gem cutter would sit and cut paste one day, rubies the next, sapphires the next and around he went.. Each paste has been rubbed over with silver..

The earrings dangle 1 1/4" from the top of the new silver shepard wire. They measure 5/8" across.. The pendant measures 1" x 5/8" across..

They are full of glitz and boy do they throw off a rainbow show when anywhere near the sun..

These are likely Portuguese in Origin

Condition is very good with one tiny pinpoint indentation behind mount. Al;so, some of the black dots have faded but are more pronounced in hand.

CIrca 1780

Earrings weigh 4 grams total weight. 2 grams each.. The pendant weighs 2.2 grams..

The wires were replaced as they were very tired. They look fantastic on the ear and are very comfortable! Questions are always welcome and encouraged
