Older vintage faceted blue paste pierced earrings. Paste stones were the darling of the day in years past as gemstones were not always right at hand and new ideas so exciting. The faceted glass has a high lead content that allows for beautiful illumination and sparkle. The stones in these pierced earrings have a wonderful domed shape and intricate facets. Crafted in a stunning periwinkle blue they measure 7mm in diameter. They are prong set in a crimped buttercup backing that displays beautifully in a scalloped frame.
The drops will display just below the earlobe and measure about 10mm in diameter. There are hallmarks on the back of the earrings which I have pictured in the photos.
