Ancient folklore claims that if a man presents his lover with a moonstone necklace by the light of a full moon, their union would be blessed with a great passion that would never subside.  Perhaps this piece was created with these amorous intentions…

Yet another legend dubs moonstone to be the “Traveler’s Stone,” a talisman for protection, health, and good fortune.  Roman and Hindu beliefs clam that the lustrous stone is actually made from solidified moonbeams – a gem created by the tears of the moon.  Whatever the reason for crafting this late Victorian pendant, the fruition is stunning.  It’s sure the inspire passion in anyone who wears it.

The much-fabled moonstone is perfectly showcased in the center of this hand-crafted necklace.  This particular one has been cut and polished in classic cabochon style allowing its two most desirable properties to shine:  adularescence and chatoyancy.  Each of these phenomena are created when light hits the surface of the stone, making it shimmer and glow.  Borders of multicolor enamel and hand cut azures complement the center to complete this exquisite design.

Wear it under the light of the moon, if you dare…
