This fabulous moonstone is well carved and sits in a brooch shaped as a horseshoe . The mounting tests as 800 silver and is studded with 13 large sparkling " diamond" paste stones. The paste stones add light and brightness to the bluish cast of the moonstone.
The carved "man in the moon" is 5/8 inch in diameter and with its surrounding is 1 1/4 inch in diameter. The brooch weighs 7.5 grams and has an original re-enforced "T" pin and "c" clasp. The piece might benefit from an added ring at the top and then could be worn on a chain as a pendant.
We have been smitten with carved moonstones for years and find it painful to part with any! But!! For the age and quality of the carving and the brightness of the pastes, this is an attention-getter. Pin it on, show it off and accept all the compliments.
With the rare--once in a life-time -- sighting of the moon moving over the sun, we might get to see a man in the moon. Here is your opportunity to commemorate this very special day with the man in the moon of your own.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: Bluish/white :silver, Size: 1 1/4 inch diameter
