    Condition: Overall, good condition, expected for vintage pieces. Some of the rubies have some minor surface chips and flakes, but they otherwise bear deep, luscious, saturated hues. The diamonds are all apparently near-colorless, with only minor, typical inclusions. All stones appear to be sturdily-set. The white and yellow gold is skillfully-crafted into the piece, with detailed craftsmanship, and a smooth, round band shape, for a consistent, comfortable fit. Some minor age wear is typical and to be expected.
