This antique Silver Moonstone pendant is simply beautiful!
With nine luminous Ceylon Moonstones in open back settings, this pendant offers the most amazing adularescence. The colours of the Moonstones change from completely clear to shades of rich blue, milky white and pale lilac, and all have a glorious magical glow.
Each stone is individually set within a secure bezel setting, and the open backs allow the passage of light through the stones.
The pendant has a beautiful cluster or flower design that's just over 1 inches long, so it's a great wearable size and looks extremely demure worn with black for evening!
It comes complete with the 24" or 61cm Sterling Silver chain (as pictured), which is likely a more recent addition to the pendant, but looks equally beautiful on a velvet or satin ribbon as they would have done in the late 19th Century.

This gorgeous glowing Moonstone pendant is in beautiful antique condition. The Moonstones are as beautiful now as they would have been over a century ago and are real quality gems with the bluey-grey schiller that all Moonstone fanatics covet! All of the gems are securely set and the Silver has a lovely dark aged patina that brings out the glow of the Moonstones.
As with the majority of antiques the pendant does show a little wear commensurate with age. There's a little light abrasion to the central gem, and a tiny nick on the top of one of the Moonstones (at the six o'clock position) but it has not affected the look or longevity of the stone. on close inspection, there is also a small chip on the back of a Moonstone (at the eleven o'clock position) but this is not visible when worn. All in all a beautiful piece of history ready to wear and enjoy!
