Victorian Moonstone & Diamond "Man in the Moon" Ring

$3,500.00


Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1900

A stunning antique Man in the Moon ring, the central moonstone is a bright blue colour - displaying strong adularescence - and surrounded by a halo of rose cut diamonds. The head rests on a simple 18k gold band, and the diamonds are set in silver to enhance their colour - as was typical of the era. A beautiful piece, they don't come up often and this is a particularly fine example of the style.
