Circa 1890 to 1900, this pretty Victorian Silver Paste Crescent Moon Brooch is a genuine antique and is beautifully romantic!
In Victorian times the crescent moon represented a new relationship, and the hopes it would "wax" into marriage. It was a symbol of femininity and spirituality. Stars were also an important emblem of Victorian times- symbolising direction and guidance for the spirit.
As such it would make a unique and thoughtful wedding or engagement gift!
There are 27 individually cut and polished Paste gemstones set in solid Silver, all with a gorgeous sparkle! They're old mine cut like just like old antique Diamonds, and would make a perfect gift for those who crave a touch of "old-school glamour"!
The brooch pin is strong & in perfect ready to wear condition and looks stunning worn on a cardigan or coat lapel, on a scarf or threaded into a simple Silver chain and worn as a pendant.
Creatively inclined?! We can also envision this brooch becoming a sleek and refined necklace. Set on a Silver or Gold chain sitting elegantly just below the collar-bone it would make a beautiful piece for every day casual wear.

This pretty Victorian Silver Paste Crescent Moon Brooch is in beautiful condition. There are no chips, missing or replaced stones and only minor abrasions to some of the facet edges under x10 magnification but these are not visible to the naked eye. Solid construction. The paste stones are beautiful, full of radiance and sparkle. They do vary slightly in colour on close inspection, with one of the central stones taking on a slightly duller appearance. This is quite subtle and doesn't affect the beauty of this fantastic, romantic brooch. A great gift ready to wear and enjoy!
