The Moon, Moonstones Have Inspired Quite a Bit Of Romantic Lore. Jewellery Lovers, Especially Royalty, Have Highly Valued These Gems For Centuries.

 

Moonstone has always been very popular in India. The stone was also prized by the Romans, who thought it was magically formed out of moonlight. Moonstone was used in Roman jewellery since the year 100 AD. Ancient Greeks and Romans both linked the stone with the moon deities. Moonstone comes from the mineral family feldspar, which is one of the most plentiful in the world, however fine gem-quality moonstone is scarce and is becoming more scarce as time goes on. Moonstone was very popular in the Art Nouveau jewellery of the early 20th century and continued to flourish until around 1925 in the US. Men wore the stones in stickpins for their ties, in cufflinks, rings and mounted as ornaments on watch chains. Women wore moonstones in bracelets, brooches, rings, earrings and necklaces.
