  • This is a delicate and dear necklace with an antique Victorian crescent moon gracing the design. The moon is of silver-gilt, inlaid with natural, faceted garnets and natural seed pearls. The moon is 4 cm long and at its widest, it is 1 cm.

  • For the Victorians, the crescent moon had a significant meaning. Young women saw it as a symbol of a new relationship, with a hope that it would “wax” into matrimony. But it also represented spirituality.

  • The pendant, which was once a brooch and now altered to a pendant, hangs on a necklace of natural, sky-blue chalcedony cubes (5 mm), interspersed with pink slivers of tourmaline (8.5 mm) and tiny cultured freshwater seed pearls (3.9 mm)At the end of the necklace, there are two handmade, fair trade sterling silver beads, crafted by the Karen hill tribes in Thailand (7.6 mm).

  • A silver toggle clasp has been used because toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.

  • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with its own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.

  • Length 46 cm.
