VERY GOOD. This Georgian 9ct Gold Pearl Mourning brooch is in very good condition. The brooch has kept beautifully well over the course of its life, which is quite amazing given its age. The Pearls are all secure and have retained a wonderful nacre. The centre does have a slightly worn-down setting in one area, but this doesn't affect the piece overall. The back of the brooch has some wear visible, but this is likely where the Gold has been previously tested. The metal pin allows you to wear this brooch with confidence time and time again!
