Antique Victorian Crescent Moon Paste Rhinestone and Turquoise Brooch: This antique Victorian brooch dates from the late 1800's, when crescent moon pieces were hugely popular. The moon is one of the oldest symbols used by mankind, with the waxing and waning of the moon symbolizing starting over or rebirth. The moon was also tied to the feminine and female empowerment, with an emphasis on new relationships. This stunning moon is crafted in two layers, the bottom crescent is made from brass and the top from 800 silver. The brooch is set with a row of graduated paste rhinestones, absolutely brilliant but for a few of the smaller ones which have darkened over time, seen at the crescent points. The top row is sky blue turquoise from the country which starts with a "P", but due to PayPal shutting down sales that mention this country, shall remain nameless. The brooch is unmarked, but I acid tested the silver. All stones are prong set in secure settings. The brooch measures 1 1/2 by 1 1/2" and has a tube hinge and a C-clasp. There are a few tiny tiny fleabites to the paste stones, only visible under magnification. The condition if this piece is amazing!
