Antique Parisian Crescent Moon
Both of the elements which have created this stunning and tres individual necklace, I purchased on a recent trip to the Parisian Flea Markets.
This beautiful antique 'fine' jewellery piece has been created using a French silver antique crescent moon (formerly a brooch),
Crescent Moons were given as love tokens and signified 'new beginnings', a 'new phase' or 'good luck' and often given as a wedding/honeymoon gift by a sweetheart.
This crescent is a particularly handsome example of that I have ever come across, being quite chunky, with deep set original paste stones. There is a lovely depth to this piece which is emphasised by delicate open work to the sides, which has been attained with expert craftsmanship. This piece definitely needed a spectacular 'stage' deserving of it and I have therefore coupled with this pretty and much sought after decorative 'ball and star' link silver vintage locket chain.
All in all a gobsmackingly gorgeous necklace to wear and enjoy whatever the dress code.
Fabulous and forever cool. Wear alone or awesome layered with any of my other charm necklaces. Wear it with your jeans and biker boots - wear it with your cocktail dress, but always wear it to grab attention!
Chain length: 18 inches
Crescent Measures: 3cm x 3cm (excluding bale ring)
This is a quirky one-of-a-kind heirloom piece, bringing the wearer an item of jewellery as exclusive and individual as them. The perfect keepsake or gift to celebrate life's milestone occasions or just life!

Be Gentle with Me...............
Please treat your vintage jewellery with the care and respect deserving of its age. Rub gently with a soft silver polishing cloth periodically to keep its vibrancy. Please do not bathe in your vintage jewellery. Avoid dropping on hard surfaces. Enjoy!
