The ethereal beauty of moonstone is showcased in this simple but elegant sterling silver necklace. You will feel like a fairy-tale princess from the moment you clasp it around your neck. Or better yet, perhaps like a mermaid, since the graceful scrolls on either side of the moonstone always remind me of the ocean's waves, holding a single drop of moonlight between them. But whatever it reminds you of, you can be sure that the Silver Rainbow Moonstone Scroll Necklace is an heirloom-quality piece that you will treasure for a lifetime.
Moonstone is a fascinating gem. It is a type of feldspar, which is a relatively common mineral. But in rare cases, the natural forces conspire to create a property in the stone called "adularescence", giving it an otherworldly sheen reminiscent of moonlight. And "rainbow" moonstone is rarer still, with its muted pinks and blues that can be seen in its depths when the gem captures the light.
Practitioners of gemstone magic say that moonstone has a gentle healing energy that restores inner balance and soothes the heart. It is reputed to increase intuition, and to promote passion and harmony between lovers.
This sterling silver necklace is adjustable between 16" and 18" long.
I'm getting ready for my wedding. Would these make good bridesmaid gifts? Yes, absolutely! Moonstone seems to have a universal appeal. No one can resist its allure.
How should I care for my moonstone jewelry? In most cases, all you'll need is a soft cloth with which to polish it up. If it needs a more complete cleaning, try a drop or two of dish detergent in some warm water. Let it soak for a few minutes before rinsing and drying. It is not advisable to use ultrasonic or steam cleaners with your moonstone jewelry.
