VERY GOOD. This 15ct Gold Victorian Pearl Garnet cabochon "fly" arrow brooch is in very good antique condition. The honey-hued 15ct Gold is in glorious shape throughout, retaining a lovely brightness over the years. The fly, too, is in wonderful condition, the design all intact and the gemstones securely set. The Pearls and Garnet cabochon are free from damage of any kind, sleek and smooth to the touch. Whilst there is some minor surface wear to the arrow, commensurate with age, this is very subtle and does not affect the appearance of the piece. Complete with a metal pin, fastening securely, she will never leave your side!
