DESCRIPTION (Please scroll to the bottom to view video)

Crescent moon jewellery was particularly favoured by the Victorians as a symbol of a new start, new relationships, growth and beginnings.

Celestial events such as Halley’s comet enlivened the imagination of jewellery and the popularity of crescent moon jewellery increased

This charming example dates to the Edwardian era circa 1910 and is crafted from 9ct rose gold and set with a series of thirteen graduated round lively Opals and twelve tiny rough cut diamonds.

Measuring 5cm in length this sweet and meaningful piece of early 20th century jewellery looks simply beautiful pinned to any lapel or shirt front!
