French Green and White Paste Pin
Item No. PMO0900970
A sterling silver Art Deco pin set with green paste stones intended to look like emeralds (the central stone even has purposeful inclusions!) surrounded by diamond-like white closed-back paste stones. French, circa 1920.
It is the foil backing that gives paste stones and closed-back pieces their unique beauty. This foil is prone to breakage and disintegration and is almost never replaceable. It is also moisture-sensitive so be sure to keep away from water and other liquids. To clean, use only a soft, dry brush and cloth. Never immerse in water or cleaning solution.
