'The Honeymoon Period'
This beautiful unique 'fine' jewellery piece has been created using a delightfully delicate and pretty antique Victorian Silver and 9ct rose and yellow gold 'Honeymoon'* Crescent Moon piece (formerly a brooch), with central bow detail and forget-me-not flowers and leaves along its crescent, the contrast being so sweet and unique.
* Victorian brides wore brooches with a crescent moon cradling a flower on their honeymoon. These sweet styles are called 'honeymoon brooches', which were said to represent 'the magic of the moon and the sweet nectar of the flower'.
Sometimes, where a piece has been converted from a brooch, there may be evidence of a little 'scarring' on the reverse, from where once the pin and hinge lived. However, this does not detract from the pieces beauty or wearability in any way. I have set this dreamy piece on a brand new belcher link chain. The silver chain complimenting the crescent moon perfectly. Furthermore, I have added in 2 rings along its length, allowing the necklace to be fastened in 2 different places, therefore giving the versatility of being able to wear the necklace at 2 different lengths. The necklace fastens by way of a bolt ring fastener. Classically lovely forever heirloom piece.Wear alone or layered with any other of my longer necklaces. Wear for romance. Approximate Measurements: Overall length: 18.25 inches, can also be worn at 16.25 inches Crescent Moon: 4.9cm 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!
