VERY GOOD.  We are pleased to be able to offer these antique 9ct Gold Paste flower earrings in such wonderful condition. The Paste gemstones are bright, free from any chips or cracks and securely held in their bezel settings. Although there is some minor surface wear on the petals, commensurate with age, this does not detract from their overall beauty in any way. The 9ct Gold is glossy and has retained a great domed form and the hooks are robust allowing you to wear these Victorian earrings with confidence.
