This riviera necklace is handmade in the historical tradition of paste jewelry. It features emerald cut stones with skilled faceting that gives them stunning sparkle. These modern heirlooms are made from antique paste stone dead stock hand set in recycled sterling silver settings. Paste stones are made from a specialized glass that is highly refractive to mimic the sparkle of diamonds. The tradition of paste jewelry goes back much further in time, but reached the height of popularity in the 18th and 19th century. The material takes particular skill to cut and polish, and paste jewelers were highly revered in their time. They could achieve effects with paste that could not be achieved with diamonds. Paste jewelry was worn by royalty and aristocracy.
