    objet conforme - emballage correct - envoi très rapide - Dommage que les Frais de port soient si élevées pour la taille du paquet (mais on le sait avant d'enchérir !)

    I received the product in accordance with the order, but he has no stamps / hallmarked gold required by law in most countries - so I do not know if it is 18 ct. I believe it is 18 ct.Thx! :)
