Popular in the 19th century, this is a late 20th century interpretation of a Victorian moon-face brooch made in 1991 by the now fashionable jeweller Stephen Webster. The moonface is carved in Labradorite, a member of the moonstone family, which displays flashes of brilliant blue as the light hits it. Like moonstone, Labradorite, because of its structure, is very difficult to carve successfully. The mounting is in London hall-marked 18ct gold, and is set with cabochon sapphire and emerals, cultured pearls, and tiny diamond highlights. Width: 2 1/2 inches: 63 mm
