VERY GOOD-GOOD: This Georgian Silver Rock Crystal Paste pendant is in fantastic condition throughout. All of the gems are secure with little signs of wear of their facets and their settings. This pendant once was a Georgian brooch, but it has been faithfully restored to a glamorous pendant. There is one tiny small ding on the back of the pendant, and the 9ct Gold backs have lightly worn away, but this is hardly noticeable when worn. You can clearly see many of the original black dot Paste details, with one Paste that has had some plate repair, but we believe the style is most-definitely of antique origin.
