Paste is a type of glass which has been used since the 18th century.
During the 18th and early 19th century fine Diamond and precious stone jewellery was often part of the family heirloom therefore they would have replicas made from Paste to safeguard their heritage.
They would take their paste jewels to grand functions and to the party season in London where admirers wouldnt be able to know the difference.
This is now why Paste jewellery is still so highly sought after, as it was made with just the same amount of highly skilled craftsmanship as antique fine precious jewellery, so much so that it has become a collectors item.
The clear paste stones sparkle just like Diamonds and the purple Paste stone appears just as an Amethyst.
This is a stunning ring which would make a great addition to any collection or an ideal gift or engagement ring.
