Hugging the side of centerpiece is a delicate crescent moon lined with sparkling diamonds! The stones are set in white gold, and add further beauty to the alluring design. Stamped inside the band is an "18K" gold purity mark, and an "S" hallmark. The same signature "S" also appears carved into the base of the moonstone, visible underneath the centerpiece.
