Antique Paste Jewellery
Paste is cut leaded glass that is faceted to resemble gems or precious stones.
Often referred to as Strass (after Georges Frederic Strass), an 18th century
Parisian jeweller. Strass became world famous for his paste jewellery after he
was appointed jeweller to the King of France in 1734. He used a mixture of
glass and lead that makes glass highly reflective and began mounting them in
the most sumptuous of settings. The stones are coated with a metal coating or
foiling, sometimes tinted, to make them even more brilliant and refractive.
Paste jewellery soared in popularity during the mid and later 18th Century,
Marie Antoinette wore it copiously.
