This full-dress waistcoat set of perfectly matched moonstones will take you to the moon – and back, to a time when gentlemen and ladies might kiss, but never never tell. Retailed, and probably made by, Chester Billings & Son between 1897 and 1910. (History note: Chester Billings & Son is predecessor to Randal Baremore & Billings – jewelers who were responsible for moving the needle of taste from pearls to diamonds. A fascinating story in itself.) Six 14K gold studs; each moonstone approx. 7mm. Total grams 13.1. Original box has wear appropriate for its age.
