This superb antique Moonstone drop necklace has 5 beautiful Moonstone cabochons set in Sterling Silver, with a simple and alluring design. The two elegant asymmetrical drops are typical of Edwardian design and yet remain timeless and relevant today.
The Moonstones are of that superb quality that you can only find in genuine antique jewellery, where the gems were mined in ancient Ceylon... they glow with soft, dewy greys, ethereal lilac tones, and shots of blue silk!
The paired back look of the early 1900's looks just as good today as it did over 100 years ago.
Beautiful, easy to wear and highly collectable, you can't go far wrong with an antique Edwardian Moonstone necklace!
