These sterling silver and moonstone earrings create an organic, natural aesthetic by combining the mysterious beauty of the moonstone with asymmetric, free-flowing sterling silver.
Moonstones get their name from their likeness to the effect of light bouncing off the moon. The stone has been used in jewellery for centuries, dating back to ancient civilisation. The Romans admired moonstone as they thought it was born from the solidified rays of the moon. Both the Romans and Greeks associated moonstone with their lunar deities. In more recent history, the gem became popular during the Art Nouveau period when French goldsmith Rene Lalique and many others created large quantities of jewellery from the stone.
