This unique antique Silver Moonstone brooch pendant was made during the late 19th Century, during the Art Nouveau period, and displays all the beauty and craftsmanship associated with this kind of rare jewellery.
The brooch is of supreme quality and the large sugar-loaf Moonstone is magnificent!
The Moonstone features a very high dome and an irregular shape that you just won't find in modern jewellery today. It's in gorgeous condition with a high polish to it, and strong adularescence.
It looks semi-transparent and pale grey from the side, whilst from another angle it packs a powerful silvery white glow.. like the moon itself!
The setting itself deserves a mention too, with a beautiful halo of ornate Silver claws and an open back that lights up the stone and will keep you staring back for hours.
We've added a new Sterling Silver jump ring and a simple 20" solid Silver chain for added versatility, so you can wear it as a brooch or a pendant. So, if you love Moonstones and rare treasures this may be the brooch / pendant for you!
ERA: Late 19th Century, c.1880 -1900
MEASUREMENTS: The Moonstone measures 27mm x 19mm.
The width graduates from 4mm to 8mm.
MATERIALS: Sterling Silver, Moonstone, Silver metal pin for strength.
HALLMARKS: None present. Tested as Sterling Silver.
CONDITION: Very Good
This wonderful and unique antique Silver Moonstone pendant is in gorgeous condition for its age. The large Moonstone especially is near pristine, with no chips, cracks or nasty scuffs. There is one tiny nick or "flea-bite" to the surface of the stone on very close inspection, but considering the age of the piece and that Moonstones are a fairy soft gem, the pendant is looking phenomenal! There is a tiny bit of wiggle in the Moonstone as the claws have loosened slightly over time, but the Moonstone is well-set and is not at any risk of coming loose. One of the claws is slightly bent but the setting is still absolutely beautiful and very secure. All in all it's a truly magnificent antique Moonstone pendant, and deserves to be worn often!
