Condition Report

The emerald beads are bright and well matched, both slightly irregular in form, translucent with typical ‘jardin’ of inclusions, some of which are surface reaching. One rose-cut diamond has been replaced with a single-cut diamond. The brilliant-cut diamonds are bright and lively, total weight approximately 1 carats. Some evidence of adaptation to the tops of the caps (around the fittings), and the stud fittings are probably later. Gross weight 8.9gm. The flat bottomed emerald has an average diameter of 10mm, and a length (to cap) of 8.8mm; the other has an average diameter of 9.2-9.6mm and a length (to cap) of 10.02mm.
