Kicking off my listings this week with this absolutely wonderful crescent moon necklace. The Victorians loved a good symbolic gift and crescent moons represented femininity, intuition, and possibility.
Add some amazing gems to that and you really have a piece that makes you catch your breath! This is a brooch conversion and a carefully done one that hangs off center in a way that emphasizes the beauty of the crescent shape. The moon pendant is bright yellow 18K and is studded with two 3mm garnet cabochons in a bright purple toned red and three seed pearls ranging from 3mm to 2mm in diameter.
All stones are set into engraved star shaped collets which add to the celestial vibe of this piece. The pendant is about 30x31mm and attaches to the chain with two delicate eyes. The chain is marked for 14K on the clasp and has a spring hoop closure.
Its newer than the pendant. It has a delicate curb style that looks perfect with the pendant. The entire piece is about 17 inches long.
It falls beneath/right at the collarbone on most. The settings on the pendant are closed back dating the piece to the early part of the 1800s.The pendant has a nice heft and dimensionality. Total weight is 5.6 grams. The item "Victorian CRESCENT MOON Garnet Cabochon Pearl 18K 14K NECKLACE Estate Antique" is in sale since Sunday, December 1, 2019.
