VERY GOOD:  This pair of Victorian 9ct Gold scarab beetle earrings are in very good condition. There is some light wear to the metal, the bright 9ct Gold that would have originally once been there has been worn with time, to reveal a more muted tone somewhere between Silver and Gold. Nevertheless, the scarabs are all in great condition with nice shiny green shells, full of texture. Look under close inspection to reveal glimmering iridescent details in petrol green and shimmering orange! Complete with the later addition of 9ct Gold chains and posts, you can wear these antique beauties safe in the knowledge they'll sit securely and comfortably in your lobes all day long.
