Condition:

VERY GOOD. This Edwardian Silver Opal, Sapphire and Ruby butterfly pendant is in very good condition. Each of her stones are securely set and radiats a spectrum of colours. Due to her Rubies being hand cut, each one has a unique and organic shape, meaning there are slight gaps around the Rubies in some of their settings. This is not something of concern as they are all securely set and we feel this adds to her antique charm. Her Silver has been gilded with Gold, creating that light golden tone throughout. She has kept her structural integrity well, with only slight surface wear. In her previous life she was a brooch but has been lovingly converted into a pendant, to allow you to suspend her from a dainty Gold chain adorning your neck. Overall a simply stunning piece!
