VERY GOOD. We consider this antique 9ct Gold Sapphire spider brooch to be in very good condition. The spider is firmly affixed to the 9ct Gold bar brooch, with both stones present and secure. The 3D aspect of this brooch adds depth to the piece creating a feast for the eyes. Where the spider meets the brooch there are areas of darkening to the grooves, commensurate with age but this doesn’t hinder her overall beauty.
