This fine antique Silver Moonstone festoon Necklace is in remarkable condition. The Sterling Silver chain and bezels have a beautiful natural patina, holding in the Moonstones with the utmost security. The links are all safely connected to the next with the bolt ring in perfect working order. The 17 Ceylon Moonstones are exquisitely matched in tone and colour, deep indigos with the perfect translucent shimmers, all wonderfully smooth and unharmed by time. There is only one Moonstone that has a possible hairline crack or it could be a surface inclusion but it is extremely minor and subtle that we couldn't possible tell. What an utterly mesmerising antique necklace, ready to be worn for many more moons to come!
