VERY GOOD. This Edwardian 9ct Gold green Garnet charm is absolutely gorgeous. In very good condition overall, this piece features a rare Yttrium Aluminium Garnet in a fern green hue. There is one little fleabite on the back of the stone, but it's securely set and sure to impress. The bezel setting has some slight surface wear on either side from where she has been expertly converted from a bar brooch, however, this cannot be seen when worn. A piece of Edwardian jewellery sure to make an impact!
