VERY GOOD: This 18ct Gold Banded Agate Pearl stick pin is in wonderful condition for its age. All of the gemstones are secure in their settings, with no signs of wear to their smooth surfaces. Plus, all of the gemstones are original which is rare to find in antique jewellery! It appears that the back of the stick pin head has had a small repair done, but it looks like this was performed in antiquity, and can not be seen when worn. Nevertheless, the 9ct Gold pin is very robust, so you can wear this stick pin for many more years, or have her converted into a charm or ring.
