VERY GOOD. This Edwardian Silver Paste swallow pendant is in very good condition. Each Paste gemstone is present and secure, with each one possessing its own unique colour and glisten, adding to her antique charm. The structural integrity of the piece is fantastic, she does have a few areas of wear to the Silver but with an admirable patina, this isn't noticeable. Please note sometimes the heart can fall facing the other way, but the majority of the time when resting against your chest it falls correctly. With all components securely connected and with a 9ct Gold jump-ring, she can be worn with confidence!
