VERY GOOD: This Victorian Garnet bead five strand bracelet is in wonderful condition. Most importantly, the original Garnet clasp shuts nice and tight, giving you the confidence to wear her to all occasions. Plus all of the Garnet beads are secure, knotted and have only minimal surface wear nibbles to their facets. There are some marks to the back of the clasp, but these are hidden when worn. Considering that this bracelet is over a century old, it is quite remarkable that she is in such good wearable condition today.
