EXCELLENT. This Georgian Gold swivel mourning ring is in excellent condition! The Plump Pearls are set securely and damage-free. The central hair work panel has also kept incredibly well, alongside her neat Enamel border. The swivel mechanism is in fine working order and allows you to choose which side is on show. The Forget-Me-Not Panel shows no signs of wear which is quite incredible. The band shows no sign of resizing meaning she has retained every inch of her original charm.
