VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT. This Georgian 9ct Gold Enamel mourning ring is in very good condition! Given her age, you could almost say this ring is near perfect! The Enamel detailing has only a few chips here and there, but the Gold lettering is entirely legible, and simply breathtaking! The ring band has a few signs of wear on the inside shoulders and centre of the band, hence why we don't recommend resizing this ring, but you can still wear her comfortably if she's the right size for you! The piece can be safely stored in the box with which it is sold.
