    This set belonged to my mother (b: 1918) so it would have been bought in Sydney in the Interwar Period. It consists of a Necklace around 43 cms long with 9 moonstones and 15 ? stones surrounding them; a bracelet measuring around 18 cms long with provision for 7 moonstones although there is one missing and it looks like one could have been replaced at some time (there is also 3 of the smaller stones missing although I do have one in the box) and 2 clip-on earrings around 2 cms long by 1.5 cms wide. On the back of each of the settings, embossed in the silver is #1024 and what seems to be Lotte or Lottie or Lotie. Just wondering if anyone knows the history of this jewellery, the name and what the smaller stones are? Thank you, Jeannie.

      Please edit your post and add more photos. Need to see the back of the jewelry and also a good, clear photo of the name.

      Hello Efesgirl, sorry it took me a while but I have now been able to get a reasonable image of the back though it's still hard to read, sorry. Jeannie.

      Hi JeannieSmith! Welcome to CW :-)

      Your set is lovely, and it is always great to have sweet family memories attached to it!

      Sorry if I may disappoint you, this is costume jewellery, opalite "stones", surrounded by small aurora borealis mounted on Base metal, not silver.
      Aurora borealis situe it in 1950'.
      I haven't been able to find the maker/brand.
