Wow! This one is truly a stunner! It's hard to believe it's "only" paste, as it sparkles more than the real thing! Of course, Georgian and Victorian paste pieces were crafted by jewelers, and were works of art in themselves, This one is clear and purple, and there is even a stone in the bail. The back is closed and silver. The piece measures 2 and 1/2 inches North to South, and 1 inch East to West. This one is certain to be noticed when worn.
