VERY GOOD: This Georgian 12ct Gold Pearl Garnet mourning locket is in fantastic antique condition for its 210 years of age! There is some minute wear to the nacre of some of the Pearls and minute scuffs to the glass, but all of the gemstones are securely set in place and are original to the piece. The inscription is also crisp too! The fact that this is the only sign of wear for its long age is remarkable, and you can certainly treasure this piece for many more years (and pass down to future generations too!)
