Antique Arts & Crafts Moonstone Silver Earrings

Ancient romans believed that moonstones were formed by drops of moonlight. They associated it with romance, femininity, and dreams. It’s the ancient Greeks who named this stone, after the ethereal silver light of the moon. Both cultures associated it with their lunar deities. I’m not one to argue, since I also think this gemstone is absolutely divine! During the Arts and Crafts era stones such as monotones, pearls, and opals were used quite often as they seemed alive with the way they shined in most any light.

These antique Arts and Crafts moonstone silver drop earrings were handcrafted in England in about 1910. They’re a gorgeous set with Art Nouveau influences, featuring two round en cabochon moonstones set in a silver leaf motif. The moonstones give off a hint of blue as well as the ethereal white color they’re known for. Overall, they weigh 4.9 grams and individually, each measures 38.3 x 12.3 mm. They have been acid tested.

For a pair of earrings they’ll surely ask you about, or that statement piece your jewelry box is missing, these are it!
