Shimmering moonlight

Vintage moonstone & sapphire necklace in silver, circa 1970

This necklace, which we discovered for you here in Berlin, is delicate and graceful. At the centre of a fine silver anchor chain is a fairytale setting of seven light blue moonstones and eight dark blue sapphires. The moonstones shimmer wonderfully in the most delicate shades of blue, as if the eponymous moonlight had been captured. The moonstone is characterized above all by its adularescence, a bluish-white shimmer that glides over the entire surface of the stone when it is moved. Moonstones that come from the classic country of origin, Sri Lanka, are usually almost completely transparent to milky-white and have a delicate bluish luster. Quite so we can also observe it here. With its movable suspensions, the piece of jewellery flows down the décolleté and changes its appearance with every movement of its wearer. The moonstones are set in silver, which, with its cool colouring, goes wonderfully with the shine of the moonstones.
