VERY GOOD. This 9ct Gold Enamel 'shamrock' pendant is in very good condition. Throughout the course of her lifetime, the Enamel has faded from what once would have been a deep forest green, but we love the varying green tones that have come from this, exposing more of her Gold body. The back of the pendant does have a few scratch marks, but this cannot be seen when worn. With a full set of hallmarks, we can accurately date her to 1961 making her a vintage delight! Complete with her jump ring, she is ready to thread onto your favourite chain straight from the box!
