Story

Simply the finest and highest quality blue moonstone we have ever offered has been majestically carved in such a manner that the aura of the moonstone has been brought to life. The piece is worked so masterfully with depth that when viewed the figure appears three-dimensional. Upon her upswept wavy hair rests a tiara, as the mysterious female is clothed within a flowing gown with sheer front bodice up to her neck. Translucent and ethereal, the brooch when viewed from certain angles seems to have a scallop or ray-like effect emanating from the perimeter of the moonstone.

Set in silver-topped 18k yellow gold, an oval surround of fifteen (15) natural sapphires and thirty (30) rose cut diamonds with an estimated total weight of .30 carats creates a corona of precious gems in an attempt to equal the radiance of this unknown woman. The brooch itself has an 18k yellow gold coronet setting of openwork design. To behold this jewel is an experience itself, perhaps an early antique hologram of nature.

THE FINE PRINT

Due to the nature of antique & vintage jewelry, many diamond and gemstone weights are calculated by measurements, not removed. Actual weights are noted in the item's description. Grading of diamonds and gemstones may vary slightly when removed.

HONESTY

Being as honest as possible about the items we represent for sale is our ultimate goal! Our pricing is industry recognized as fair and equitable with value as the byword.

Hallmarks: Indistinct hallmarks to "C" clasp and pin stem.

Condition: Excellent; one bend to the pin stem which appears to be an element of the original configuration. Moonstone is very fine with one natural internal inclusion to the right of the neck - although visible in our photograph this shows up very faintly at some angles when seen in person.
