Moonstones are gems as fascinating as they are beautiful, a fact that has given them a very special place in Albert Hern designs for generations. Their faint, cloudy glow is reminiscent of the moon, making them look great on both the jewelry and the wearer.

The beautiful color of moonstones can come in many facets, in all of them, their interior always remains suspended, static, as if elegantly resisting the passage of time.

Moonstone symbolism

When you first see a moonstone it is easy to see in its cloudy, yet iridescent appearance, as if they were full of magic and mysticism.

Within ancient Hindu traditions it was believed that moonstones came from crystallized moonbeams and if used properly allowed the wearer to see the future.

In parallel in the West the same conception was formed (curious, isn't it?). The Romans thought that moonstones were small fragments of the moon and that they brought with them powers.

They have been employed for centuries as symbols of intuition, emotions, dreams, magic and even romance. All thanks to their misty yet elegant appearance that has inspired the making of the most beautiful jewelry.

 

Moon stone jewelry

Since the Art Deco era, moonstone jewelry has been featured in all kinds of collections and accessories up to the present day, especially in cufflinks, earrings, bracelets and designer watches.

The reason for their popularity is that their subtle sparkle, which escapes the standard maestrean, doesn't have to be dazzling to look beautiful and catch looks.

The truth is that there is a variety of moonstone jewelry for sale, however, not everyone, if not almost no one, knows exactly the symbolism and meaning of this beautiful and mystical stone. At Albert Hern, we try to give them much more than just a monetary value, we imprint on them their true essence.

 

How to wear moonstone?

The moon stone jewelry has a delicate tonality that helps it to combine with any outfit, so you will rarely have a problematic set in this sense.

If we talk about the symbolic point of view, culturally it is said that moonstones should be worn on the little finger when they are in rings, visible at full moon when they are necklaces and at all times when it comes to cufflinks.

If, on the other hand, what interests you is the combination of jewelry, you will surely be happy to know that these gems go very well both in solitary in combinations of strong character: yellow gold or white gold bases, platinum or colored gems.

 

Is moonstone valuable?

Generally a moonstone is a beautiful and affordable alternative, but there are many subjective variables that directly interfere with the price, so establishing an overall value is complex.

Some stones depend only on the intensity of color, inclusions or rarity. In the case of moonstone the value depends a lot on the adularescence, an almost unique property of these gems.

Since the internal conditions are more complex to evaluate, there is greater price variability, although some well-crafted mountings become very valuable.

As the tone of the moonstone becomes bluer and clearer, they become more desirable. You can use these beautiful oval moonstone earrings as an example.

 

Where to find moonstone in the United States

Most moonstones in the United States come from the mountainous regions of New Mexico, so it is possible to get gems of very good quality and of verifiable ethical origin without any problem.

This is a great incentive for fine jewelry moonstone making.
That said, moonstones are also available in many other places in the world such as India, Brazil, Mexico, Madagascar and more.
