VERY GOOD. This Victorian scarab beetle pendant is in very good condition. The scarab beetle has held up very well retaining that rich colour we all know and love. The beetle has started to come away from the setting around one side, but she is still securely attached. As her exoskeleton is very delicate, when wearing this piece she must be handled with the utmost care and avoid any contact with water. Her settings have a gap at the bottom where a clasp would have once fitted in her previous life as a bracelet, but when she is worn this cannot be seen. Complete with later added chains and a jump ring, she can be worn securely having a newfound purpose.
