GOOD TO VERY GOOD: This Russian blue Enamel Diamond bow egg charm is in very good condition. These rare Enamel egg charms heavily inspired by the work of the renowned Golsmoth Faberge in Imperial-era Russia will always be a top pick here at Lillicoco. Although she is in lovely condition for her great age, we think that one Diamond may possibly be a replacement and her vivid blue Enamel has light wear throughout. The hallmarks on her jump ring remain clear and crisp - a wonderful Russian find. A fine and ready-to-wear piece of history that is cute, versatile and the perfect size!
