VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT. This antique 9ct Gold & Silver Masonic orb pendant is in fabulous condition. The 9ct Gold exterior is smooth and glossy, free from dings, dents and scratches to note. Her moveable settings are all in fine working order, unwrapping to reveal the hidden pyramid cross so perfectly. With settings that move independently, you can be sure she is an antique! More modern versions of these pendants do not include this feature. With each pyramid shape intact and only very light wear to the engravings, she is a real treat.
