CONDITION

Stunning piece. Very high quality. The earrings are on Shepards hooks so for pierced ears only. The hooks fasten into the top of the back of the top segment with the hinge halfway down the hook.

There is an old solder repair as highlighted by the pictures which shows a small crack to the reverse. The earrings are totally stable but if bent very aggressively this region would be a line of weakness. The condition of the earrings otherwise is superb.
