This Victorian 15ct Gold Moonstone Pearl flower necklace oozes with femininity. Inlaid with 8 bright Moonstones with a total carat spread of 9.02ct, and two Pearl and Paste floral clusters, this integral necklace is rich with grace.
These antique Moonstones are really quite spectacular, showing a clear and electric white schiller in all lighting conditions. The Pearl and Paste flowers enhance the dreaminess of this piece, and it's short length offers sophisticated wear.

VERY GOOD: This Victorian 15ct Gold Moonstone Pearl flower necklace is in wonderful condition. All of the gemstones are firmly cushioned within their settings, with no signs of major wear to their glossy surfaces. We believe that the two bright green Pastes are replacements as there are trace amounts of glue around the setting (this can only be seen under a 20x magnification loupe). This isn't unusual for antique jewellery, and it also gives you confidence that these gems will also stay put.
