EXCELLENT: This Georgian 18ct Gold Pink Topaz Chrysoberl pendant is in fabulous condition for its 200 year age! The 18ct Gold still retains its fabulous saturation and hue, with each curl still intact and crisp. As can be expected, the foils have lightly worn from age, which is most noticeable in the Pink Topaz. Yet, the foil's charm and inherent beauty is still intact, and in fact, it gives the Topaz greater depth. Both of the gemstones are secure in their settings and free from chips also.
