Moonstone was a favored gem by Art Nouveau and Edwardian designers including Louis Comfort Tiffany. We always love a glow-y moonstone with a blue flash. The rarest and most expensive moonstones will be colorless with a floating blue color or schiller that seems to hover above the stone. This phenomenon is termed adularescence and is due to a combination of orthoclase and albite feldspars, arranged in layers. This vintage moonstone necklace will capture your eye and draw in your gaze with its luminescent clear blue hue. The moonstones are all set in 14 karat gold and accented by sparking old mine cut diamonds. This piece is a rare find and a beautiful statement piece for any day or night out.
