This superb antique 9ct Gold Moonstone brooch features some of the most beautiful Moonstones we have ever seen here at Lillicoco!
Held in a rich and buttery Yellow Gold setting, these five Moonstones are so clear they shine like still, pure pools of water, and seem to glow from within. They're in stunning condition, with attractive high domes and a strong bluey-lilac adularescence or "schiller" that you just don't get with modern day Moonstones.
This brooch looks gorgeous day or night, rain or shine... these fine ethereal gems won't ever let you down! It looks great worn on a silk scarf for Spring and Summer, or on a cardigan, a lapel or chunky knit. It really is quite versatile!
The brooch can also be threaded onto a Gold or Silver chain for an easy pendant, although it would also make an ideal conversion piece. We can envision it quite well as a stylish horizontal necklace, around 16 or 18" long, with a fine Gold chain each side so it sits just below the collar bone.
If you're interested in converting this unique antique Moonstone brooch converted into a necklace please get in touch and we'll be happy to advise!
