Victorian Moonstone Sapphire Gold Heart Pendant Locket Enamel

Ancient R omans 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 won’t argue, as I also think this gemstone is heavenly. There’s nothing better than a moonstone accented with a sapphire, as sapphires and moonstones share similar symbolic properties. Sapphires have been attributed to royalty since the beginning of written history. The color and rarity of the stone signified power and wealth. During the Middle Ages, sapphires were thought to be the divine stone, and shield the wearer from harm and disease.

This elegant antique Victorian moonstone heart pendant was handcrafted around 1890, in America. It was made in 14 karat gold and features a pretty blue cabochon cut sapphire in the center of a heart shaped moonstone! The sapphire is 4.5 x 4.7 mm and is .6 total carats. The heart moonstone measures 11.5 x 15 x 6 mm. Framing this feature is a border of blue enamel set with golden enameled flowers. When turned to the back, an antique photograph of a beautiful Victorian woman is revealed! The overall measurements of this pendant are 32 x 20 x 12.5 mm, with a weight of 9.6 grams. This piece is unmarked, and has been acid tested.

You don’t have to be royalty to don this adornment, being a lover of all things beautiful is qualification enough!
