Moonstone is a very unique gemstone and is often a milky white colour with a soft blue tone running through it, as well as having a wonderful visual phenomenon called adularescence, which is best described as a glow from below the surface, giving the impression of moonlight floating on water- hence its name. Whereas today much of the moonstone on the market has many inclusions, quite often the antique pieces are just amazing to admire from near or far such as in this very elegant antique moonstone necklace. Dating from the early 1900's, the necklace was made in 9 carat gold and is set with the largest oval one in the centre measuring 25.2mm by 13.3mm, with the other six pieces graduating smaller in size. The way this necklace sits on the neck really showcase each of the pieces and looks so elegant day or night. Measuring 43cm when laid out from end to end, this is truly such a wonderful and unique necklace that will always be loved, cherished and admired. Stock# ES8344 Circa: 1910 $5,650

Moonstone is unlike any other gemstone that has been prized for centuriesand is often a milky white colour with a soft blue tone running through it, as well as having a wonderful visual phenomenon called adularescence, which is best described as a glow from below the surface, giving the impression of moonlight floating on water- hence its name, and here is a very attractive and elegant antique moonstone fringe necklace dating from the 1890's. Set in a hand made setting in 9 carat gold, there are eleven pieces of moonstone running across the top with seven hanging below with a final tear shaped drop piece at the bottom. The quality of these moonstones is superb as often moonstone today has many inclusions in them, whereas these not only have the most beautiful colour but are so clean that will make it be appreciated even more. Measuring 47cm from end to end allows this necklace to sit just perfectly on the neckline with a beautiful fluid movement to it. The design combined with the colour from all of the moonstones make it so elegant and this is a piece of jewellery that will look so good during the day and just as beautiful in the evening when worn for that special occasion. Jewellery from the late Victorian era when this was made, always seems to capture the imagination and take you back to a wonderful bygone era, and this is a piece that will always be admired and appreciated for its beauty and elegance.
