    Overall Condition: Very Good
    Notes: Bracelet, brooch and ring are all marked "14k". Finding this type of artwork is becoming harder and harder. These are treasures from a different era in time. The process involves carving the backside of a rock crystal quartz cabochon, then hand painting the design. From there a mother-of-pearl slice is affixed as a backdrop. The artwork seen here is in very good condition.
