General Information:
  • Length: 16 inches
  • Total Carat Weight: 226.67 ctw
  • Precious Metal Weight: Approx. 3.5-5.5 dwt total (approximated due to setting type)
  • Precious Metal Material: 14k Yellow Gold (chain and bezels)
  • Dimensions: Moonstone charms range from about 4 mm to about 8.5 mm in size
  • Weight: 35.03 grams
  • Markings: 585 (located on hook clasp)
  • Era: Vintage; this necklace is difficult to date because its style is classic and one which has been worn since the Georgian period, though the markings and clasp style indicate likely Mid Century origins. During the 1950s and 1960s, a Victorian Revival swept through the wearable and decorative arts. This necklace appears to be a cross between this Revival style, and the streamlined look of Mid Century design. However, its exact dating is difficult to nail down without knowing its precise provenance. 
  • Buyer Notes: This necklace is a rarity, as most moonstone necklaces do not have as many gemstones. As such, the carat weight is professionally evaluated. Only two to three gems show some wear, as pictured. No wear is visible to the eye when worn. Please see more photographs of this necklace on our website, and do not hesitate to reach out via Instagram for a video of this piece in varying lights to better view its adularescence.

Specifications:

  • Center Stone Type: Moonstone
  • Center Stone Count: 260+ (by count, at least 262) 
  • Center Stone Carat Weight: Approx. 226.67 total carats by formula (using carat formulation for moonstones: 0.0027 (cabochons) x 2.76 (moonstone/feldspar specific gravity) x length x width x depth); carat weight calculated by taking samples from each set of gemstone sizes per size increase (graduation). This estimate is mathematically calculated using industry standard equations to provide approximate carat weights.
  • Center Stone Dimensions: Average stone dimensions per twelve graduating size categories from end to end (these dimensions are a sampling meant to represent the average size of stones per graduate stage): 4.0x5.0x3.0 mm, 4.8x5.3x3.2 mm, 6.5x4.8x3.4 mm, 7.2x5.5x3.6 mm, 7.5x5.5x3.6 mm, 8.5x7.5x4.2 mm (largest size category), 7.6x5.6x3.6 mm, 6.9x4.9x3.6 mm, 6.1x4.2x3.4 mm, 5.5x4.0x3.2 mm, and 4.9x3.6x3.0 mm.
  • Center Stone Shape: Round to Oval Cabochon
  • Center Stone Color: Nearly Transparent with Light Whitish-Blue Sheen

The Story:

Beautifully crafted and set with over 260 individual moonstone cabochons, this fringed necklace is a dynamic take on the classic ‘rivière’ style statement piece. Traditional rivières feature single stones that graduate in size towards a single, largest center gemstone, while this necklace features hundreds of dangling moonstones that grow in size toward the largest clusters in the center. Each moonstone is set in a bezel band with a top loop and gold ring that affixes to the cable chain of the necklace. The effect is spirited and full of movement, the moonstones like lively charms that animate with the wearer’s movements. 

The featured moonstones range in size from a most delicate 3.8 x 4.0 mm to 8.2 x 7.0 mm, and are between round and oval cabochons in shape, all of relative depth. Each one shows the desirable near-transparency that is clean without visible inclusions. Further, each one shows the captivating blue adularescence that collectors look for. However, please note that this blue sheen is soft and temperate, appears whitish depending on the light and angle, and is not the deep and vivid effect that much deeper moonstone cabochons demonstrate. Rather, these are light and glowing, sweetly different from the sea of vintage moonstone necklaces on the market.

By placing an order, you accept and agree to uphold Revival Fine Jewelry's terms, conditions and policies.

Regarding All Purchases: All additional 'prop' jewelry boxes, ring boxes, or any other jewelry items pictured alongside the featured listing are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless explicitly noted in the listing description and/or title. Your order will be carefully packed within a branded Revival Fine Jewelry gift box and will ship in a discreet outer shipping parcel.

Regarding Sale Purchases: Items purchased while on sale and/or sold at specially discounted rates negotiated and agreed upon by Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated consumer are considered final sale. Sale and discounted items are nonreturnable, nonrefundable and ineligible for layaway.

Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.

Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.

Layaway is available for full priced, non-sale items priced $600.00 USD or greater, and items may not be combined to attain price-eligibility. Plans are offered as 3-month/90-day maximum terms.

In exchange for offering interest-free plans, customers agree to abide and uphold the following nonnegotiable terms and conditions:

• A 30% non-refundable deposit is due upfront to reserve the item for layaway and pull it from public sale on all of our shopping platforms. Shipping expenses are added to this first payment unless otherwise requested.

• The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If deliquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is added per day to an overdue payment until paid.

 In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.

Layaway items are promptly boxed and shipped to the designated customer once the final payment successfully processes. Taxes, import and other legal fees are not calculated into the payments, and are the sole responsibility of the customer, whether a domestic US or international buyer. Revival Fine Jewelry is not responsible for calculating, covering or adding such costs into purchase prices.

All layaway payments as well as all items purchased through layaway plans are considered final sale; neither payments nor items may be refunded, transferred, exchanged or returned. Revival Fine Jewelry does not issue store credit.

Revival Fine Jewelry reserves the right to cancel any layaway plan at any point for any reason if fraudulant activity is suspected. In this event, the designated customer will be notified prior to the intended cancellation of their plan.
