This really is a lovely example of Victorian craftsmanship. This rich 9ct gold crescent is set with a hue of creamy peaches and pale grey pearls and has the most beautiful deep open work detail to the sides (see photographs). Making this a high quality, interesting and desirable piece.
I have coupled this beautiful piece with a complimenting 9ct gold antique interlocking circles fancy chain. Which is so pretty and sets the crescent off perfectly. The chain fastens to the back of the neck with a barrel clasp, which has a nice 'snap' to it.
Tip: Always make sure you hear your barrel clasp snap/click into position before removing your hands and wearing.
Originally this crescent moon piece would have been worn as a brooch.
Crescent Moon Trivia:
The ever popular Crescent Moon celebrates the feminine moon goddess and therefore are associated with female empowerment. They also symbolize change, as it turns into a full moon and then back, similar to the ebb and flow of life. The Victorian's loved to give crescent moon brooches as a wedding gift to a bride, signifying 'new beginning' or a 'new phase' of life.
