VERY GOOD. These Victorian 9ct Gold carved Coral drop earrings are in very good antique condition. The carved Coral pieces have kept their details beautifully over the years, retaining a divine orange hue throughout. There is some light wear to the Coral, which is to be expected from an item of their age! This is all subtle, however, and doesn't detract from their charm. All the components are firmly attached and the Gold remains bright. There is some wear to the Gold, and a solder to one of the stems, yet this is not noticeable when worn! The earring posts sit securely in your ears and the backs screw on firmly. Full of character, these earrings are a fabulous find.
