VERY GOOD: This Georgian 12ct Gold Carnelian mourning locket is in wonderful condition. The Carnelian has kept its great shape and colour, the inscription is crisp, and the hair-work is securely kept behind the glass frames. There is some surface wear to the glass on both sides and there is a little nibble to the Carnelian bale. That being said, this does not detract from its beauty and wearability.
