Description

This gorgeous jewel is an original Georgian artisan cut steel & electric blue sapphire paste cabochon buckle dating to the 18th Century. The buckle clasps at the center & was worn as a gorgeous adornment at the waist of an 18th century gown. You can see how each section of this amazing piece has been riveted together on the reverse & every facet of the cut steel crafted by hand. The blue is more electric than the photos show & just a little darker. I would best describe the color of the cabochons as that of a good Kashmir sapphire. It would make the most exquisite accessory for a special wedding ensemble. This buckle when clasped together measures 3 1/2 wide & is 1 13/16 tall. Each electric blue paste glass cabochon is 5/32″ in diameter approximately. It weighs 29.7 grams approximately. At magnification there is some age appropriate patina to the cut steel very fine surface oxidation to the steel all consistent with a genuine antique from the period. The buckle is ready to gift or to wear. Looking at this astonishing Georgian accessory you can’t help but imagine the places it has beenthe parties! It is from another time & a world away & apart from ours. We will ship this special buckle in a presentation box ready for gifting & for safe keeping.” Blue Cut Steel Buckle Jewelry Georgian Antique Paste 18Th Century Dress Costume
