This brooch has been converted from a button. It has paste stones closely set with the classic ‘black spot’ in the centre to add depth to the stone. They are gold foiled backed.
Paste is a heavy, very transparent flint glass that simulates the fire and brilliance of gemstones because it has relatively high indices of refraction and strong dispersion.
The central old cut stone is 1.20ct alone.
