As their name suggests, moonstones have been associated with the moon over various cultures and ages due to their typical milky bluish effect and white reflections reminiscent of the full moon shining through a veil of clouds.

With its appearance, man has attributed the same gifts of the moon to moonstones. As the moon renews itself monthly, so would moonstones retain youth, restore broken love and improve fertility. As the moon influences the tides, so would moonstones protect against stormy waters. Legend even has it that the ever-changing blue and white lustre of a moonstone is a sign of a beneficent spirit dwelling within.

It's clear that a lot of history and lore hides within this gem. But of course, no need for any excuse to purchase a charming ring with a moonstone as its center. And yet, it wouldn't hurt to give it a rub to see if a genie pops out, would it?

Vintage Jewellery:
A passport to other worlds?

This obvious exquisitely crafted Italian Fifties 18K rose gold bracelet chain is the carrier of an 18K yellow gold charm representing an African tribal mask. Not only in style and appearance does this mask strongly resemble those of the African Lega tribe, situated in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

Also, just as Lega masks are usually handheld or appended to the body, and not worn over the face -in contrast to typical masks from other African cultures-, this mask is also made to wear on the wrist and clearly not over the face.

Generally, exclusively the members of the highest ranks of this community are allowed to own and show these masks, which made the Lega mask to evolve into and serve as a sort of passport proving who you are and where you're from. This bracelet could just be your permit to yet to discover worlds, who knows...

For both the characteristics of its quality as for more information about these masks, we invite you to visit the jewellery webpage of this outstanding and unique piece.
