These Christophe Danhier Pink Moonstone earrings were created with a touch of sophisticated romance in mind. A hypnotic addition to French designer Christophe Danhier’s Candide Eye Collection in 18K rose gold.
Artfully dangling from each ear is over 4 3/4 carats of completely alluring pink moonstones. Total moonstone weight for both earrings is approx. 9.55 carats. Beautiful pink moonstones create a mysterious romantic allure in this captivating tiered design. Next, over 1/4 ct. (.26ct.) pink sapphires bring the pink tones out of the ethers of these moonstones. This color combination creates a soft, harmonious blend with the 18K rose gold. Lastly, .70 ct. high quality diamonds in graduated sizes highlight the entire design.
Obviously the name comes from the stone’s ethereal moon-like glow. This phenomenon in moonstone appears as a soft glow that floats beneath the surface of the polished gem. Imagine moon glow through a thin cloud cover. Moonstone comes in color variations of this moon-like glow, usually silver, blue, peach, pink or colorless.
Compelling and ethereal feeling, moonstone is the birthstone for June, along with pearl and alexandrite.
