VERY GOOD: This stunning Georgian Paste pendant is in such excellent condition, it's almost unbelievable to think it was made nearly 200 years ago! The Citrine Paste is almost mint; with no chips or scuffs and only a very light wear to the facet edges under a loupe and a gorgeous lemon yellow colour. The Diamond Pastes around it have a little more wear, most notably one Diamond Paste gem has been chipped, although this is only noticeable on very close inspection. All of the gems have been thoroughly checked and are secure in their settings. The hoop and beautiful domed back remain unscathed and feel beautiful resting elegantly beneath the collar-bone.
