Antique Late Victorian / Early Edwardian 15ct Gold Moonstone Necklace Circa 1900

Enchanting late Victorian / Early Edwardian natural blue Moonstone necklace comprising eleven oval and round Moonstones of outstanding quality.

Each Moonstone is housed in a 15ct yellow gold mount to a fine trace chain between each which allows for lovely articulation to enhance the ethereal glow, known as **adularescence or schiller effect, which in the case of this superb necklace is excellent, bright blue and magical.

Ranging in size from 5mm to a very large 1.5cm x 1.0cm for the largest oval Moonstone drop.

The fine but solid 15ct trace chain was designed for a petite neck at 37cm circumference .. however it is a simple procedure for any jewellery to extend the length by adding several jump rings.

**Adularescence or schiller is a metallic iridescence originating from below the surface of a stone, that occurs when light is reflected between layers of minerals.
