Condition

VERY GOOD: This Georgian 9ct Gold Garnet and seed Pearl mourning ring is in very good condition. All of the gemstones are secure, with the Garnet possessing rich sangria hues. The nacre of Pearls does have some wear, but we love their authentic feel and spectrum of shimmers. The Gold has darkened in the grooves but otherwise has retained its sun-kissed hue. The inscription has also been perfectly preserved, allowing you to marvel at this ring's beauty and history!
