VERY GOOD. This Georgian 9ct Gold flat cut Garnet locket brooch is in very good antique condition. Each flat cut Garnet has retained a gorgeous sparkle and is securely set in pie-crust settings. There is some very light surface wear to a couple of the gemstones, commensurate with age. But overall these gems are in fabulous condition for their age! There is some light wear to the 9ct Gold too, in keeping with the age of the piece. She retains a lovely Georgian character, however, and the locket centre closes firmly shut, ensuring that whatever is inside is kept safe. There is a tiny scratch to the glass front, but this is very subtle. Although she is a brooch, please do let us know if you'd rather the option of wearing her as a pendant. All in all, this charming treasure is the piece your collection has been missing!
