Condition: overall in excellent preservation for age. The amethyst facet junctions are well preserved and still crisp; no eye-visible chips or abrasions; under 40x loupe magnification I can spot some very minor expected surface wear. Some natural age patina to the gold. Chased floral details are well preserved. Two tiny granulation beads are missing from the clasp (hard to spot). Age-related surface wear and some expected surface unevenness (to the smooth back) due to hand fabrication to the gold.
