Vintage jewelry is not new and there may be imperfections. I've tried to explain the condition of this item to the best of my ability using both words and pictures. I am a novice jewelry collector and dealer so some of the terminology used may have been used incorrectly. All the jewelry has been acquired from my mother who was a collector. The items will come to you in the same condition I received it. I do not recondition, restore or repair as I subscribe to the motto "First, Do no harm". Also, from time to time I miss something because I have so much jewelry to go through and inspect. If I do, please contact me and let me know because I want my customers to be satisfied.
