VERY GOOD. This Georgian Garnet cabochon Pearl star memorial ring is in very good antique condition. The 18ct Gold remains as bright and buttery as ever, retaining its saturated hue remarkably well over the years. Whilst there is some minor Enamel loss to the back of the Gold band, the text is still legible, and this is in keeping with the age of the ring. The Garnet is in lovely condition too, its grooved shape intact, with only a couple of very small nibbles to cabochon itself. The Pearl is also impeccable, and is securely set within the Gold star settings. Overall, we simply can't believe the fabulous condition of this ring, she will continue to delight for years to come!
