Victorian Moonstone "Star & Crescent" Necklace

$1,000.00


Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1880

A celestial Star and Crescent Moon necklace, set with ten graduated blue moonstones. The piece has been beautifully crafted from 9k yellow gold, we’ve converted it from a Victorian brooch, adding a 16 inch gold chain. The stones rest in scalloped claw settings, and display excellent adularescence, the effect whereby they appear to glow from within when the light hits them.

The crescent was a popular motif in Victorian jewellery, representing spirituality and the glorification of the Feminine Moon Goddess. Often combined with a single star for direction and guidance of the spirit.
