Moonstone & 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 necklace is a combination of champagne-white, round moonstone beads, smaller, grey, elliptical moonstone beads, and small green-grey labradorite beads. The beads are linked together with stainless steel wirework and are attached to recycled silver-colored chain elements, which give this necklace an Art Deco like appearance, while the gemstones remain in their celestial charisma.


The total length of the necklace is 49cm, the chain elements are 10cm each. 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.
