This is a substantial, elegant necklace made with dreamy creamy moonstone. Each stone is of very good quality and shows gorgeous color and translucent shine from within.
This moonstone is from a strand that I found years ago. I tend to "hoard" my favorite strands and then let them be free when I find the right pendant or have the inspiration!
The stones have wonderful adularescence (glow or inner light) that give the necklace dimension and personality.
The Romans thought moonstone to be formed out of moonlight and the stone of sensitivity and love.
In modern day Indian, moonstone is considered to be sacred and magical.
Graduating in size toward the center, each stone is separated by a sterling puffer beads on the sides.
The triangular custom pendant really catches the eye with fabulous inlaid mother-of-pearl, sterling silver and enormous translucent yellow, golden, and very clear rutilated quartz.
The rutiles are dark goldish red. They are crisp and sharp and add extra interest to the overall necklace.
The bale matches and swings freely allowing for radiant movement. There is a mark on the reverse of the pendant that reads "Sterling", assuring the wearer of its quality.
Color me a gem snob, I am. I only use the best of the best stones, so the piece has durability and timeless style.
The necklace is connected with a nice sterling lobster-claw clasp at square loop. This beauty is guaranteed to garner lots of attention and compliments and we know you'll love it.
This is a bold, substantial necklace that makes for a great statement piece. It is nice and chunky and looks great on the neck.
