VERY GOOD. A beautiful Georgian foiled Rock Crystal pendant offered in very good condition. Circa 1780 this Georgian Rock Crystal pendant is luminous! The Crystal itself is large and radiant due to her crisp facets, and the Gold colouration from the foil inside is soft and billowy- giving a pretty effect. The closed-back setting is smooth, with only minor signs of her 240 years of age. There is a small flea-bite or nick in the crystal close to the setting on the left-hand side of the hasp, but this is quite subtle. The hasp and jump-ring are robust and will stand up well to daily wear or being worn often. To keep her looking her best avoid damp weather conditions, and avoid humid environments like steam-rooms. Of course, like most antique jewels it is best to avoid swimming, bathing or contact with chemicals, make-up or perfume whilst wearing this 18th century pendant.
