Story

The Edwardian era had a penchant for the moonstone – perhaps due to its mysterious ancient nature as a sacred and healing gem or because it has been held in high esteem as the feminine or goddess stone.

The ethereal beauty of the moonstone is obvious. The pendant drop is carved with the figure of a woman draped in a diaphanous gown, most likely Selene, believed by the Greek poets to be the moon incarnate as the original Titian goddess who radiates a gentle light. The image of the goddess is captured within a platinum bezel held within at the four cardinal points with diamond-set platinum appointments.

The platinum link chain, interspersed with diamonds and ten natural (untested but assumed natural due to age and visual inspection) pearls each about 3.5 to 4.0 mm attaches to a delicate and ethereal diamond encrusted platinum trefoil element. In all, a mix of fourteen (14) old mine cut and one round cut diamonds embellish the necklace.
