VERY GOOD. This rare Portuguese Georgian Imperial Topaz flower brooch is in very good antique condition. Each Imperial Topaz is a natural gem, and all are well matched in hue with peachy golden hues to remind you of long, hot summers. There is one replacement stone, which is also an antique but is not quite as old as the rest. Steeped in history, this incredible Iberian brooch is a real delight to behold. There are some dings and wear to the settings which is commensurate with age, including one or two small pin-holes. But all the gemstones themselves are phenomenal, remaining brilliantly bright and alluring throughout their lifetime. A true one-off!
