Circa 1890's Mystical Antique Crescent Moon Pearl and Diamond Brooch
Inspiring and meaningful, this antique Victorian crescent moon brooch is in pristine condition and has a pleasing perfection of form. The whole is in gorgeous 15ct yellow gold (used 1854-1932) and the curved arc of the crescent decorated with lustrously plump half natural Saltwater Pearls as the cascade of stars are set with bright hand-cut Diamonds. These brooches with a crescent moon, and sometimes stars as in this case, were known as 'honeymoon' brooches and were often given to brides to wear on their wedding day. It's a piece to wear and wear as it can sit at a variety of angles, each to slightly different effect.
Measures 3cm across.
