VERY GOOD: This Georgian 18ct Gold Maltese Carnelian cross is in sublime condition throughout. The 15ct Gold work in itself is in great nick, with only minute surface wear and all of the Pearsla re securely set. There is also the odd nibble to the Carnelian cross too but this is only noticeable under very close inspection. The locket back hair work is secure, but can be removed by a professional jeweller if you desire.
