VictorianMan in the MoonRing
This sweet, spectacular, and collectible Victorian era man in the moon ring is a rare find. Most likely converted from a brooch in the late 19th century, the head features a sculpted glass cabochon representing the kindly visage of the man in the moon. The celestial center stone is partially framed by a crescent of seed pearls and sits within low scalloped prongs. The handwrought 18k yellow gold mounting features elegantly bifurcated shoulders and a half round hoop.
