This double Crescent Moon necklace was matched after years of buying to make this festoon style necklace. I was inspired after wearing two crescent moon necklaces layered and felt that I wanted to find a pair to make into one. The crescent moons are 14k yellow gold with white gold tips set with natural pearls. A cable link chain was attached to both moons.
Chain adjusts to 18", 19" and 20" length.
Type: Natural Half Pearls
Color: Grayish White
Measurements: 23 @ 3.4 - 1.7 mm & 15 @ 1.8 - 2.1 mm

Metal: 14k yellow gold
Markings: 14K on hook that was removed
Weight: 4.9 grams
Condition Rating: 8 (converted from a brooch by removing pin findings and attaching chains)
Thanks for looking!!!
Incredible Victorian Double Crescent Moon Necklace
Bracelets and rings get the most wear out of all the styles of jewelry. Make sure that your jewelry is professionally cleaned and your stones checked annually.
For gold rings, the higher the karat weight, the softer the metal will be, and the easier it will scratch. Frequent polishing is unecessary. Polishing your rings removes layers of metals and will thin it out through time.
The same goes with platinum, as it is a malleable and softer metal, yet denser, which makes it last longer. Platinum is also a white metal naturally and stays white, whereas white gold is yellow that has white alloys giving it a whiter appearance, but will never be as white as platinum.
For high value items, typically of $1,000, it is a good idea to have your pieces insured on your homeowners policy or with a separate insurer like Jewelers Mutual.
