The faceted stones are bezel set and rest in a smooth eyeglass setting, allowing the light to pass through and catch the facets beautifully with every turn. The stones look dark sapphire blue, to light aqua blue and sparkle and shimmer. The chain is approximately 62 total length and has a clasp closure. French paste is a vintage jewelry term used to describe the practice of using faceted cut glass, cut in the shape of a real gemstone, instead of using gems.
This process, which was developed in the 1700s, created the look of a sparkling gemstone or diamond but cost much less than real stones.
