Double-Stranded Moonstone, Quartz, Labradorite Necklace

Catching the Moon

Moonstone, with its thousand shades of white and its dreamy glare, is – like labradorite – a member of the feldspar group and has great cultural and historical value. The Romans believed moonstone to be created by the light rays from the moon itself. It has been used in arts and crafts for thousands of years and has been associated with lunar deities. In modern culture it has become the birthstone for the month of June.

This double-stranded necklace is a combination of champagne-white, round moonstone beads, smaller, grey, elliptical moonstone beads, small green-grey labradorite beads, smoky-grey glass beads, faceted beads from smoky quartz, and beads made from fine silver. Both strands are tied together in the back by four faceted labradorite beads of a pale grey-green color. The overall appearance of this necklace shall reflect the moon and its mystical color-play in late spring and early summer, when the nights get warmer and nature dips the very air in a green hue.


The total length of the necklace is 56cm (adjustable to 58cm). The champagne-white moonstone beads have a diameter of 1.2cm; the grey moonstones are 0.8cm wide and 0.5cm high. The smaller labradorite beads have a diameter of 0.4cm. The necklace closes with steel lobster-claw clasp.
