There is some wear and a few darker stones, which is to be expected for a piece over 110 years of age. The majority of the stones are very brilliant and sparkly, and the metals finish is in very good condition with normal wear or loss. The last photo makes the stones look very dark, but I included it to show the metal all the way around. It is still very beautiful, but I try to be as specific as possible. It measures 2 3/8 inches. It would be absolutely perfect worn at the waist of a bridal gown.
Please see my return policy prior to purchase. Thanks ;-)
