Condition report;
Coral; nicely carved bats, striations of the coral growth visible in the coral with a loope. There is a chip to three of the corners two very slight and the other substantial. Coral is loose in the mount. Some losses to the gilding. Clip works well.
Green hardstone; shallow carving, can't see if the back is carved, as the filigree is quite dense, it doesn't appear to be shiny, so its either not carved or dirty. There are dark inclusions within the green stone, one particularly towards the point that looks like a hole but it isn't. No damage to the green stone at all. The filigree is a bit 'pushed in' in places, but it is all there, appears to be yellow metal, chain no damage, fully hallmarked 9ct to the clasp and the chain.
