VERY GOOD: This antique Bohemian Garnet cabochon cluster pendant is in fabulous condition. Each Garnet is secure, original and well-matched to its neighbour. The large Garnet cabochon does have a tiny surface scratch, but this is not noticeable to the eye. The Garnet Gold has lasted well, still retaining its signature pale, almost rosy, hue. We have added a custom made solid 9ct Gold jump ring inviting a chunky chain to be added.
