This beautiful sterling silver crescent moon pendant contains lovely faux pearls that graduate in size as they approach the moon’s center. Circa 1890’s, the pearls are original to the piece and are individually bead set into the pendant. They range in size from 1.25- 2.5mm, and are highlighted against a subtly textured backdrop. The sliver of moon curves ever so slightly, reminiscent of a bone or feather, bringing an earthly element to this celestial object.
This piece was originally a Victorian-era brooch and has been converted into a pendant for the modern wearer. There are 18 faux pearls in total. The pendant is marked on the back as sterling silver, as well as with an unidentified maker’s mark. The moon is 2 1/4” long and 3/16” wide in its thickest section. The chain, included, is 15” long. The necklace weighs 3.31 grams in total (both pendant and chain). In excellent condition.
