VERY GOOD. These Georgian 15ct Gold "day & night" torpedo drop earrings are in very good antique condition. The Gold has retained a magnificently bright hue throughout, with the textured details all retaining their form well. There is some very light wear throughout, but this is only noticeable on close inspection! The cannetille work is beautifully intricate and is largely all intact, with only one subtle piece missing from the bottom of one of the earrings. The hooks fasten securely shut, so you needn't worry about losing these lovelies. For a pair of their incredible age, their fabulous condition is very impressive!
