VERY GOOD. This antique French 18ct Gold rose-cut Perpignan Garnet cross pendant is in very good condition. The Garnets are securely set, beautifully hued, and infused with a richly saturated red hue. The Garnet on the right-hand side has one chip near its base, as well as a nibble near the top, but rest assured that this is only noticeable on close inspection. The back of the pendant is super smooth, and for the most part completely free from wear, there are one or two dings to note but that's it! The French Eagles head is stamped clearly on the hasp of the piece, making this Victorian Perpignan Garnet pendant a fine collector's piece!
