    Overall Condition: Good
    Condition Notes: A beautifully designed suite that has withstood the test of time. Though still antique, the drop does not appear to be original to the suite. Due to the nature of the mountings, the weights of the emeralds could not be determined as they are entirely backed by metal. Bracelet clasp is marked 14k. Necklace tests as 18k.
