VERY GOOD-GOOD: This antique Gold-cased split ring trio of charms is in superb condition throughout. The Gold cased split ring is in great shape with all of the engraved details completely clear, and the opening sits well with the band. All of the charms are wonderful too, the Paste gem, in particular, is nice and bright, and the clam and acorn has characterful Patina. There are some scuffs to the back fo the Paste, and the 9ct Rose Gold Gilt has worn away in parts. We believe this is either from over-polishing, general wear or previous metal testing. That being said, this is to be expected from a Georgian gem, and is certainly forgiven when we look at that gorgeous sparkling centre!
