Antique Atelier - The Victorian Crescent Necklace
"...The stars about the lovely moon, fade back and vanish very soon, when round and full, her silver face swims into sight, and lights all space..." -Sappho
The Victorians were notorious for imbuing their jewellery with hidden meaning. The crescent moon was one of their most popular motifs, which symbolised new beginnings. Channel your inner lunar goddess, and start every day anew with this beauty on your neckline!
This lovely little treasure is hand made in our London studio using an antique Victorian brooch, which has been updated and converted into a pendant and is suspended from a traditional 9k belcher chain. Featuring 19 lustrous grey seed pearls, set into an intricately carved lunar setting.
Pearls: 19 seed pearls of ascending size.
Crescent: 22.5mm x 26.5mm (inc. bail)
Chain: 18" 9ct Gold Belcher Chain (links: 1.5mm x 1.8mm)
The Victorian Crescent Necklace will arrive beautifully packaged in an Ivy Nixon jewellery box, ready for gift giving!
