VERY GOOD. These Victorian Scarab beetle earrings are in very good condition. The settings securely hold each Scarab beetle in place, possessing a right Golden tone. There is some wear to the Gold gilding, but this is only noticeable under close inspection. For their age, the scarab beetles are in remarkable condition, with no wear to note. As these are the real exoskeleton, they are very delicate so must be handled with care, avoiding contact with water. The perfect pair to bring a part of history into the future, with a super splendorous appearance at a fraction of the price!
