    While trawling on the web last night I came across this pendant, the photos are the sellers. I was instantly attracted towards it, hence I decided to buy it. I'm not sure if it is Georgian or Victorian, the seller was selling as vintage. Its a large pendant 6cm total, the central Moonstone? Is 3 cm long, in my opinion they are Moonstones. The buyer explained the metal was gold tone (not gold) which leads me to believe the metal could be Pinchbeck or gold on silver. I would love to get some help with this, I think it's lovely.
    Many thanks for looking.

      Hi Jean! I think your beautiful pendant was a part of a Georgian or early Victorian piece :-)
      The central stone is a chalcedony agate, can see the angled bands whiter in it.
      For the round ones, can't say from the pics, you will be able to see if they present moonstone adularescence when in your hands. If not, clear chalcedony they are :-)

      These are new photos, I thought the metal was gilt, when I tested it tested has gold.
