VERY GOOD. A fabulous 18ct Gold Stuart Crystal ring in very good condition. We think this piece was once a stick pin, and has been given a new lease of life as a much more wearable ring! The Rock Crystal is crisp, and has only a few little scuffs on its edges. The Gold wire cypher has remained in shape and the pink foil still pops, although it has become slightly less vibrant over the years. The ring band is smooth, circular and glides onto the finger with ease, with the Silver back settings of the Rock Crystal making her comfortable to wear.
