Story

The specific interests of the people of a culture or era often have a major impact on their environment. For example, discoveries of comets and other celestial bodies influenced themes portrayed in jewelry during the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian periods. Brooches such as those depicting Halley’s Comet became a trend. Around the beginning of the 20th century, the “man in the moon” motif emerged as a popular subject carved into moonstones and set in a variety of jewels.

The image is magnificently displayed in a very large blue moonstone carving. The gem presents its “best face forward” by being cut en cabochon — enabling the optical qualities of light to expose the magical inner glow which moonstones naturally possess.

The beaming face shown in this larger example details the rendering of a very fine carving. Romance and passion revolve around his joyous expression incised into the curve of the ethereal stone set into an 18k yellow gold bezel with 14k yellow gold shank. Slip on this Edwardian era ring and the magic and mystery of the moon will light your way.
