VERY GOOD. This Georgian blue & white dot Paste necklace & earring suite is in very good condition for the age. We are impressed with how well the suite has been looked after! The blue Paste is a remarkable imitation of Aquamarine, all set securely and predominantly in great nick - with only the odd little fleabite here and there, which is only noticeable under a jewellers loupe. The black dot Paste has also kept incredibly well, shining brightly with that desirable and very collectible black dot centre. Whilst there are some small chips, these are very subtle. The Silver also show signs of age but is all in fine working order. There are a few dings in some of the closed back settings which cannot be seen when worn, but this commensurate with age. The clasp is also in fine working order. This suit will be your "something old something blue", and will last for a lifetime to come.
