Moonstone Necklace attr. to The Artificers’ Guild
Silver and gold necklace set with moonstones that, although unmarked, we feel sure was designed and crafted at the Artificers’ Guild.
The silver trace-link chain is separated all along its length into short sections alternately by circular silver set moonstones and a design detail accented with little gold flower shapes. This is double sided, both the stones and the detail displaying similarly whichever way the chain is turned.
Beneath a heart-shaped bale, centred with another little gold flower, is suspended the slightly rounded hexagonal pendant featuring further flowers in gold surrounding a fine single moonstone.
The necklace is completed with an unusual teardrop shaped moonstone bead forming the drop.
Early 1900’s with an overall length of 46 cm. The pendant measures a fraction below 4 cm to the bottom of the drop.
