Vintage 1900s Aqua Paste Brooch
Brilliant color in this turn of the century paste brooch in a starburst design.
The aqua marine colored stones are “paste stones” with enclosed foil backs which with age has a hazy rich look! Paste jewelry was popular with royalty and aristocrats in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Paired with an elegant silver chain with a front toggle.
