  • Buyer Notes: The filigree mount is very articulated, with dotted milgrain spanning the entire surface. The band of the ring is totally plain at its base to allow for resizings as necessary. A very faint resizing seam is evidenced there under 30x magnification (pictured), though is not noticeable to the eye. This moonstone is quite notable for its flawless nature, its purity of transparency and its cat’s eye effect, which is most often found in moonstones that are opaque and deeply colored. This moonstone almost appears as rock crystal at first, but the chatoyancy quickly steals the show when the ring is in motion. The moonstone is also unique because it is so masterfully evenly shaped and polished.

The Story:

Lustrous and moody, this moonstone ring is a pool of wearable magic. The featured stone has a beautifully circular silhouette, is a very spherical cabochon and exhibits a high polish. As such, it appears nearly like a globe atop the finger, embraced within a fitted bezel that is finely decorated with the tiniest rim of milgraining. The mounting is exquisitely modeled, the pierced filigree articulating a foliate pattern that comprises all but the base of the shank. The filigree creates leafy shapes that intertwine and feel at once whimsical and geometric, recalling nature as Deco era jewels do. 

Best of all, the stone is chatoyant, wherein the moonstone gives off an optical effect colloquially known as “cat’s eye”. This means that a vertical reflective band appears to move from left to right and back when the stone is moved in the light, and the cat’s eye effect is even more pronounced as the lights dim. This moonstone stands apart from the sea of others on the market in that it is evenly transparent, with no striations or inclusions whatsoever, and is clear to the palest whitish-gray in color. It shows an extremely subtle flash in certain lights and angles that is more silvery than blue in hue.

Moonstones have been cherished for virtually thousands of years, most notably beginning with the Ancient Romans who believed that the stone was fragments of the beams of the moon itself. Native American lore states that moonstones bring visions in dreams, and is given as wedding gifts as a blessing of good fortune. During the era that this piece was made, wearers believed that the stone would bring feelings of affection and passion, and if placed in one’s mouth during a full moon, could provide a peek into one’s romantic future. Moonstones are steeped in rich meaning by countless cultures around the globe.

With a hardness of 6-6.5 on the Mohs scale, moonstone is relatively durable and could thus make for an intriguingly uncommon engagement stone. This ring is wholly unique, very proud and as enchanting as moonstone is believed to be.
