VERY GOOD. This Victorian Scarab Beetle 9ct Gold Bracelet is in very good condition. Each of the Scarab beetles are in excellent condition and secure within their settings; one has a slight movement on close inspection, but we have checked it thoroughly and it's not going anywhere! The beetles have lovely bright green iridescent flashes, and are completely free of damage!
The solid 9ct Gold settings are lustrous, and the rope detailing around the edges are still perfect. The clasp works well and you have the added benefit of a safety chain so you can wear this bracelet with confidence! It is important to remember that the scarab beetles are real! This means you must keep away from make-up, hairspray and other household chemicals to keep them at their best for another century or more!
