Cat’s Eye Moonstone, Apatite and Diamond Pendant in 14 K White Gold

(You save )

The moonstone in this jewelry piece not only has an "unearthly glow" this gemstone is prized for, but this one is exceptional in that it has an added cat’s eye effect. The cat’s eye is a white line which crosses and moves around the body of the moonstone as the pendant moves. This whimsical pendant's design is amplified by two striking neon blue apatite stones and two nearly colorless diamonds.  A truly unique piece!


GORDON'S DESIGN NOTES: "In ancient times, moonstone was said to be formed from frozen moonbeams. This reference got me thinking of the solar system and the vastness of outer space. It is this cosmic concept that inspired the symbolic design of a far off solar system with a planet and circling moons."

Protect your jewelry from impact against hard surfaces and avoid contact with abrasive surfaces. All gemstones, including diamonds, can chip, scratch, or abrade under the right circumstances.
Care Specifics:
Moonstone is particularly vulnerable to hard blows, so it should be worn with care. Apatite is rather fragile compared to most gemstones and is sensitive to heat and shock, so the use of steamers and ultrasonic cleaners should always be avoided.
Care Specifics Continued:
With wear, rhodium plating can thin to the point where a yellowish tinge may show through. Periodic re-coating with rhodium will revive the original bright white color. Re-plating does not damage the gemstones.
The best method for cleaning all your jewelry is to soak each item in a mixture of lukewarm water and gentle dish washing liquid followed by a very light cleaning with a soft child’s toothbrush.
Additional Cleaning Instructions:
Place the item(s) in a fine mesh strainer and rinse to remove the soap. Gently place each item on a lintfree cloth and softly pat them dry. See the Care and Cleaning Section of the Website for a more detailed explanation.
