Rare 3-inch Victorian Jeweled Crescent Moon Brooch
There's nothing more romantic than moonlight -- especially when you can wear it! This stunning antique crescent moon brooch is quintessential Victoriana, carried to a dazzling extreme. As you know if you collect 19th century jewelry, the crescent form is often found, but typically in lengths of one or two inches. Here's your chance to own the GIANT of the species.

Still dazzling with fire from 21 prong-set diamond pastes graduated in size, this amazing jewel has the tube hinge, open C clasp and elongated pinstem right for the period, which I judge to be circa 1870 - 1880 (early in the Victorian Aesthetic Period). The reverse shows age-appropriate surface wear and the gilt brass setting could stand cleaning, but condition is otherwise remarkable. Provenance is a New Mexico estate and probable origin is American.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping and gift wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
