A 9ct Rose Gold antique Garnet fob pendant in excellent ready to wear condition. The 11.5ct Garnet is phenomenal! It has an amazing deep purple-pink colour in the light and is free from any cracks or nasty scuffs. There's a little wear around the very outside of the Garnet; most notable two tiny flea-bites near the perimeter, but on the whole it's beautifully smooth. The Garnet is set sound within the fob, and the new 9ct Rose Gold chain is well-matched. For a Garnet fob of this size and quality to have survived so long is fantastic, and now she's ready for a new adventure!
