Mid-Century Moonstone Dress Set

Moonstone and Gold!

The silvery blue shimmer of moonstones complemented by the warm radiance of yellow gold.  This elegant dress set (a pair of cufflinks and four shirt studs) captures the bold simplicity of Mid-Century design.  The design of the cufflinks, shirt studs and the accompanying fitted case (see photograph below) help date this dress set to the 1940s - 1950s.  Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1950.

Complementing the cufflinks,  the four shirt studs feature small, round cabochon-cut moonstones set in a gold bezel.  The shirt studs (one pictured above) are 5/16" in diameter and 1 1/16" long.

The cufflinks are well crafted with sturdy fixed bridges and strong bezel settings securing the gemstones.  The brightly polished gold plays beautifully with the billowy, bluish sheen of the moonstones.
