Please understand that many modern jewelers have NO experience with jewelry this old. They may not know what it is, how it was constructed, or how to handle it. I cannot be held responsible if your jeweler accidentally damages this piece in any way. Ideally you'll want a jeweler who's had experience with very antique jewelry, and who is licensed/bonded/insured.

In general, things this old are very rare! They deserve to be treated with a certain amount of respect, and daily wear may not be appropriate.
