Moonbeams & Magic | Jessie M. King Moonstone and Enamel Lavalier for Liberty & Co.


A remarkable hand-pierced sterling silver lavalier necklace designed by Scottish artist and illustrator Jessie M. King for Liberty & Co. Circa 1900. The pendant features two adularescent moonstones, bezel set in sterling silver. The larger moonstone is surrounded by a wreath of blue and purple enamelled leaves, the smaller moonstone dangles below.

It is in absolutely pristine condition with no faults or repairs to note.

This piece is not hallmarked, but can be found in the Liberty Jewellery sketch-book, page 305. You can also see another example online at the Tadema Gallery website here.

Fellow treasure hunter Rebecca of Inglenookery has written an endearing account of Jessie’s work and history which you can read here. Much thanks goes to Rebecca – if not for her blog I might never have realised exactly how special this piece is!

This is an important piece of Arts & Crafts jewellery in pristine condition. It deserves to be loved and cherished and I can think of no one in the whole world who will wear it better than you 💖
