EXCELLENT. This 15ct Gold Garnet snake chain is in excellent condition, especially considering her grand age. The necklace has very little wear to note overall. The Garnets are bright and punchy, securely set and have a gorgeous subtle variation in hue. The back of the piece has its hallmark visible. We adore the locket drop detail, a sweet homage to a loved one whose photo you place inside. We really find it difficult to fault this incredible piece, surviving all of these years with only a minor ding to the base of the snake head.
