Condition Report:  The front panel is of an early 19th century design, but is of later date reproducing this design.  The emerald is of medium colour saturation, it may be foil backed, the setting to this is closed at the back.  The surrounding diamonds are of varying old cuts, some are drawing colour to varying degrees and some have a few internal inclusions.  They are open backed.

Size of front panel is 20mm x 18.6mm.  The snap clasp is also a reproduction of an earlier design.  The cultured pearls are not individually knotted, they are only of average quality, with generally quite a lot of irregularity and marks to the surfaces.
