This demi-parure consists of a stunning pendant necklace and matching earrings, crafted in silver and set with moonstones and pearls. It is a wonderful example of work from the Arts and Crafts movement, incorporating features of Art Nouveau design. Please see the photos, which illustrate the pieces better than my description can. Each item contains silver, although the only marks found are 925 on the lever back earring clasps. The bolt ring clasp on the necklace is a suspected white metal replacement.
The teardrop cabochon moonstone in the pendant is a beautiful blue toned specimen, exuding the characteristic shimmer for which this gemstone became so well loved. The moonstones in the earrings have a very slightly differing colouration, and are best illustrated in the image of the complete suite of jewellery. The pendant also incorporates two delightful baroque pearls. The pearls that hang from the tassel chains on the earrings are smaller and more regular in shape. The chain of the necklace measures approximately 45 cm.
The total drop of the pendant, i. From the top of the silver design to the bottom of the moonstone, is approximately 7.5 cm. In both the necklace and the earrings - measures approximately 1.7 cm. One earring is very slightly longer than the other although, as they are both quite lengthy, this is not apparent when worn.The total drop of one earring is 9.25 cm. And the other measures just over 8.5 cm. The item "Arts and Crafts Necklace and Earrings Silver, Moonstones and Pearls" is in sale since Sunday, January 31, 2016.
