GOOD TO VERY GOOD. In very good condition, this antique 9ct Gold swivel spinner fob ticks all the right boxes! Both of the stones are secure within their settings, completely smooth and free of any damage. The bale is wonderful and sturdy, and the Gold casing has remained in good condition overall, although it has darkened in some areas, particularly in the grooves- but we love fact that she's entirely authentic! There is also a hairline fracture in the Gold setting but rest assured that the stones are secure and you can only really see this when you look up close!
