Full Moon

December 24th

This fabulous necklace from Doyle and Doyle is from the 1830's. It was believed that moonstone elicited passion and enabled lovers to read the future of their relationship. Lore has it that the stone had to be placed in the mouth during a full moon in order to reveal the answer. Spherical moonstones, with the obvious reference to the full moon, is almost exclusively found in Victorian jewelry. Having just experienced the lunar eclipse during a full moon and on the winter solstice, this moonstone necklace is clearly the prophetic choice for those in love for 2011!
