"A Crescent Brooch or Pin, as they are not unusually called, is always a desirable gift, and a decided acquisition to milady's jewel box. It matters not how numerous the variety in other brooches, one must have a crescent effect numbered as among the jewelled treasures." Loosely translated, a crescent brooch is always a desirable gift and a decided addition to a lady's jewellery box. No matter how great the variety of other brooches, there must be a crescent moon among the jeweled treasures! This was already known in a jewellery catalogue published by Kent Jewelers, Toronto, in 1904. Crescent moons were among the most desirable motifs among brooches since the late 19th century. But as times changed, so did tastes: while the moons of the 19th century were still strong and strongly rounded, after the turn of the century they became more delicate, finer, with only a slight sweep. Such a typical crescent moon from the years around 1895 is also presented in the present brooch. It is decorated with a white shimmer of fine natural pearls, forged from 15-carat gold. The movable loop on the back was originally used to attach a safety chain.
