The pendant has a shorter bead tassel on the right and the ones next to it are longer indicating a partial loss, however on this does not affect design. Some darkening of metal or age in a couple of areas. Beads are very fine and older, a few have fractures inside but don’t appear cracked, three appear to have been repaired.
