ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail

A good pair of 14ct gold cufflinks that were made in the 1920-1940 period. Each link is set with a dome shaped moonstone. Since earliest times, the moonstone has been a tangible connection to the magic of the moon. Our ties to the moon are strong. As it waxes and wanes, it creates the tides and rhythms of our mother, Earth, and influences our behaviours, emotions and spiritual growth. It is also an amulet of protection for travellers, a gift of lovers for passion, a channel for prophecy, and a path to wisdom. The moonstone has been used in jewellery for nearly two thousand years. It has always been a sacred stone in India with a special significance for lovers, and is a traditional wedding gift there. It was a popular choice for jewellers in the Art Nouveau period, and in Europe was believed to reconcile estranged lovers and to cure sleeplessness! So a lot to think about when viewing these lovely stones!
