    Condition Report*: Pearls:

    Pearl: 1
    Type: Seed
    Shape: Round
    Color: Silver
    Overtone: Rose
    Luster: Good
    Surface: Slightly Blemished
    Count: 4
    Size: 1.50 mm


    Overall Condition: Good
    Condition Notes: A treasure from the past that makes a perfect companion to an antique pocket watch. Given the adornment's outdated function, one could even modify this piece to be a lariat necklace with dangling tassels at each end and it would look oh-so-stylish! The centerpiece slides along the chain and stays in place without problem, length is adjustable. Unmarked, metal tests 10k. Minor scratches to metal. Seed pearls are slightly worn on top but luster is still good.
