Condition

VERY GOOD. This blue Maireener Tasmanian shell necklace is in very good condition. The shells are perfectly strung with a mesmerising shimmer throughout. As the shells are natural they are delicate and should be handled with care. Due to their age, there is some subtle wear but nothing untoward. The end of the string is slightly visible by the jump-ring  but rest assured this cannot be seen when worn. The Silver clasp is in perfect working order, so you can wear this spectacular Victorian Maireener necklace with complete confidence.
