Very good - excellent condition. Rebeaded necklace, the new knot caps are made of sterling silver. Old fashioned spring ring clasp (does not have a thumb knob) is original to the necklace. The original cords had broke and it was once temporarily fixed with wire decades ago and then it broke again, so there were a few missing clear hand-cut spacers; I have replaced a few to make them tally. There are very slight nicks on the beads' facets from bumping around.
