Il bought it for repair or stones.

From pics, I guessed there will be a way to repair it by removing empty sections, and move festoon chains and central drop.

As the necklace is very delicate and chains very thin, it took an hour to open and close the tiny connectors !

I added security chain at back to get a confortable length, there is the result :-)

Remaining 2 moonstones drops...

  28. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 2 years ago
    No...you did a wonderful job and it looks great on you. I have a concern for you though, please check the fitting on the top stone, 3rd from the right, which would be your left. It looks like that needs a bit of tightening so you don't loose it. It's really pretty.
  29. kyratango kyratango, 2 years ago
    Right Sue, the settings are very thin and fragile so I assured the stones with a droplet of superglue applied with a needed :-)
    Thank you for the warning !

    Thank you Inky for loving the moonstones :-)
  37. AnnaB AnnaB, 2 years ago
    These are one of the best looking moonstones i've seen. The way they all have this simultaneous mystical glow is breathtaking! Usually they need to be positioned just right to catch that glow for a picture. Very nice!
  38. kyratango kyratango, 2 years ago
    Anna, thank you for pointing this! It is my first fringe necklace, and I even not realise that... Perhaps antique moonstones were better quality match than vintage ones :-)
    Thank you BelleEpoque for your love!
