The central garnet is in good condition, there are a few surface nicks to the edge of two or three of the surrounding chrysolites, the circular suspension loop at the top is probably a replacement, no apparent marks, the enamel is in good condition, apart from the lower loop and one of the small sections of red enamel to the surround, overall an attractive piece

Garnet is in good condition, all nice and uniform, one or two tiny bits of enamel damage, rather grubby around the chrysolites
