Solid 9ct Gold 18" curb chain is included with this pendant.

CONDITION: Very Good
This pretty antique Citrine fob pendant is beautifully clear and the swivel movement is smooth. There is a little light wear to the Citrine commensurate with age as you might expect of an item that's 118 years old. A little very light abrasion to some of the facet edges and a minor chip near the edge. This is very much camouflaged by the Citrine facets and the gem is structurally sound with no cracks and no deep scratches. The gemstone and it's been cut very well so that the light reflected is wonderful. All in all it's a stunning antique pendant and chain set that is sure to make you smile every time you put it on!
