Glorious blue-tinted moonstones glow brightly in this antique gold necklace. 

The finest moonstones are found in older jewels like this. Yet the quality within a piece is usually mixed, with some of the gemstones lacking in adularescence and/or that entrancing blast of blue. 

This beautiful necklace has only the very best stones. The luminous teardrops delicately suspended from matched round stones resemble cascading, moonlit droplets of water. They were a delight to photograph. 

It’s the finest moonstone necklace I’ve ever owned.
