VERY GOOD. This Murrle Bennett antique 9ct Gold Turquoise Pearl locket is in very good condition throughout. Each Pearl and Turquoise is present and secure within their settings. The nacre to some of the Pearls has worn over time but this is only noticeable under close inspection. The locket door on the back opens and closes well. The original glass on the front is still in-situ, but the back glass has been replaced with perspex. As this isn't as strong as glass when opening and closing the locket, we advise not to put too much pressure on the perspex as it can come out of place. Use the frames and the small bead to open and close her. Complete with a soldered jump ring, she is ready to be worn straight from the box!
