Vintage 14kt Yellow Gold Crescent Moon Cultured Pearl Pendant
“If I promise you the moon and the stars would you believe it? Games people play in the middle of the night.” Maybe Alan Parsons was on to something. Unless, of course, someone is promising you the moon made out of gold and pearls. If it was our Vintage Moon Pearl Pendant, we’d be willing to play the game. Even in the middle of the night, but preferably mid-day after our coffee.
What We Love About It:
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but we’re not so sure about that. Pearls have an understated elegance where diamonds are all about the showy sparkle. Kind of like those stars Alan mentioned vs. the moon.
We took our pearl brooch and we changed it up! It was just begging to be updated into something you could hang. It is the moon, after all. So we removed the pin stem on the back and added a bail and hung it from an 18″ yellow gold curb link chain. The pendant itself is made of 14kt yellow gold with graduated cultured pearls (nine of them) ranging in size from 3mm to 5mm. The pendant measures 1.5″ end to end and weighs 4.5g with the chain.
The moon can be a powerful force. Whether hanging around in the sky, or hanging around your neck. Find out for yourself.
