Moonstone and Diamond Dress Set


Dating from the Edwardian era, this suite comprising double cuff links and three shirt studs is set with moonstones and diamonds. The cuff links are designed as double links each centering a moonstone cabochon framed by rose-cut diamonds, joined by a trace link chain, and are accompanied by three smaller conforming shirt studs. With the gems’ quiet phenomenon resembling a fugitive gleam of moonlight, this Edwardian suite is an elegant accoutrement for evening occasions.

Moonstones have been beloved in Europe since Roman times. The name for the billowy blue phenomenon, "adularescence," derives from an early mining site in Switzerland at Mount Adular.
