Art Nouveau 9kt/Sterling Moonstone Circle Pendant
A lovely and artistic moonstone pendant from the Art Nouveau (ca1910) era! Crafted in 9kt rose gold topped in sterling silver, this circular piece is graced with 13 gorgeous moonstones along its surface. The round cabochon stones display wonderful translucence and semi-iridescent qualities, with lovely pale blue flashes that catch the light beautifully in their open back setting. The moonstones are prong set and nestled in a darkened silver patina setting, showcasing the wonderful mixed metals design. A hidden bail is found on the back, perfect for hanging from a favorite chain. A simply gorgeous pendant that could be worn everyday, it would make a special addition to any collection!
Measurements: The pendant has a diameter of approximately 1 1/4" and measures about 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold topped sterling setting and all of the moonstones are secure and intact. The bail is secure and in good working order. There is a natural patina that gives a darkened appearance to the silver setting, which is normal given the age of the piece and adds to its natural beauty and character.
