A beautiful in color, our "Queen Ann" turquoise paste necklace is set in silver and crafted of an unusual turquoise paste. Though dating to the mid 18th century, this style of jewelry was named for Queen Ann, who reigned during an earlier time, 1695 to 1714. The vivid foiled paste stones are faceted as cushion cuts. The necklace with its original fittings fastens with a black velvet ribbon. The silver closed back of the turquoise pastes are a work of art unto themselves. Exquisite.
