This antique French Paste crescent moon brooch is in outstanding condition, so much so it's hard to believe she was created two centuries ago. The Silver is bright with a beautiful aged patina adding to her antique charm. The Paste gemstones are all clear and their brightness emphasised by their foiled backings. There is some very minor wear to a couple of the Pastes, but this is only noticeable under a magnifying loupe. All the gems are held securely in place by their settings and the pin is in fine condition meaning you can wear this fantastic piece of history with utmost confidence!
