Arts and Crafts Era Moonstone and Onyx Brooch

1,975.00

This lovely Arts and Crafts era brooch proudly features a monumental 14 carat moonstone cabochon. Representing the most desirable characteristics a moonstone could have this example is translucent with a blue to lavender hue and a very strong adularescence. The domed surface rises 8mm at the peak and is silky smooth. The 14k solid gold frame surrounding is a nice balance of pretty, decorative details that do a wonderful job of supporting the beauty of the stone without overpowering it. The Greek Key design is perfectly delicate while the tapered calibre cut onyx corners add a visual strength and the flared leaf details add a softer, organic contrast. From left to right the brooch measures 1-3/4” and top to bottom on center at the widest point is 1-1/8”. The pin mechanism at the back is strong and secure and measures 1-3/8” from the hinge to the clasp. There is no maker’s mark yet a faint hand etched inventory number can be found on the back of the framework. Although designed to be worn as a brooch it also works well as a pendant. I’ve photographed it simply hanging on a chain by the existing pin yet should you like it converted permanently let me know and I’d be glad to discuss the options!
