VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT. Wow, this piece is in very good to excellent condition. The Cabochon Garnets and Sugarloaf Garnet cabochon are all without any scratches, nibbles or fleabites which is quite remarkable for this brooches age! The white Paste is also extremely bright every gem is set securely- twinkling brightly. There is some light surface wear on the brooch back, a normal occurrence for a Georgian closed back piece, but there are no dings to note. The c-clasp is in fine working order, and the piece is complete with a jump ring so you can wear her as a pendant if so desired!
