This Georgian Garnet and Pearl brooch is in great antique condition, so much so it's hard to believe she was created almost 250 years ago! The Garnets are all perfectly smooth with no chips or nibbles. There is some light wear to the Pearls as some have lost a little lustre, but we feel this only adds to their antique charm and are very minor considering the age of the piece. The Gold is bright and the settings are all intact making this wonderful Georgian brooch ready to be worn and enjoyed for years to come!
