Moonstone is such an enchanting gemstone. When the light catches it, the stone glows such beautiful shades of blue. We can't help but think of magical crystal balls when we see it!
The moonstone cabochon has been set in a lovely 9ct yellow gold closed back setting with a pretty border detail too. The back of the charm has British hallmarks for the maker 'YV', 9ct gold, London and what looks to be the date letter 'g' for 1981 although this is very tiny and hard to make out clearly. The 9ct gold mark dates the charm to post 1975.
The charm measures approx 11mm tall (not including the jump ring) 7.7mm wide by approx 4.5mm deep and weighs approx 0.8g in total.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition but does show some light signs of age and wear to both the gold and moonstone. The moonstone does have some light surface wear that is visible on close inspection and under magnification. When the light doesn't catch the stone, the moonstone can appear almost clear in places. The jump ring is currently pushed closed. Please see photos.
*Please note the chain and box pictured are not included in the sale but the pendant will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch.*
