VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT. This Edwardian 12ct Gold lucky four-leaf clover brooch is in wonderful condition throughout. Each Amethyst is securely set and has retained its faceted petal shape beautifully over the years, each free from chips, scratches and other damage to note. The luminous Pearls are all securely set and also free from damage, pairing delightfully with the purple and Gold hues. There is some very light wear to the Gold, but this is commensurate with age. All in all, a unique Edwardian brooch with plenty of antique charm.
