Pair of Vintage Long Strand, Opera Length, Natural Moonstone Beaded Necklaces

$150

Pair of vintage long strand, opera length, natural moonstone beaded necklaces. Moonstone is one of the birthstones for the month of June; it is also associated with the zodiac sign of Gemini. Moonstones have been used in jewellery since the Romans, who prized the gem for its healing properties. The Victorians were attracted by its association with ancient history and, during the 1960’s, the gemstone experienced a resurgent interest as part of the Victorian revival in jewellery styles. Both these necklaces are opera length, which allows them to be worn a number of different ways. Depending on the angle and nature of the light falling on the round beads, they will flash a silvery luminescent colour, a process called adularescence. Unfortunately, the camera is unable to accurately capture this fleeting property in a still photo. Sold as a pair.
