Victorian crescent moon and star pearl stud earring. This was a vintage stickpin that has been converted in order to recycle it into a single stud. A 14k yellow gold patented swiss post was soldered on in order to complete this conversion. This post does not need a back, it hinges and slides down to rest on the back of your ear comfortably.
Super cool but not in a boasting manner, it defines you as someone special, who embraces his or her inner spirituality and maybe much more!?!?
And hey, it looks great in a 2nd hole, cartilage hole or tragus piercing!
Dimensions: 9 x 6.9 mm / 1 mm thick post
Metal: 14k yellow gold
Markings: 14K Makers Mark on back of moon & 585 SWISSBACK 1502 on post
Condition Rating: 9 (pearls show extra epoxy on them)
Thanks for looking!!!

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.
