Lovely antique condition. All natural half pearl original. Amethysts free from abrasions of chips. Original 9ct gold safety pin and chain, gold pin and very nice secure original C clasp. One ring claw missing from large Amethyst however this is inconsequential given multi-claw setting and cannot really be noticed.
