Spectacular vintage condition. Shows mild wear commensurate with age, I can't see any chips, will come with some patina, as level of polish is a matter of taste. The clasp is silver but joiner gold so may have originally had a gold wash over the clasp, I have seen this in both silver and gold over the years. Has a handcrafted look to it - amazing vintage piece.
