I love this thread! Here are some celestial pieces. I never wear the moonstone necklace!
I bought it in India 30 years ago. 20220918_145126.jpg 20220918_145017.jpg

What a wonderful collection - I would love to see a pic of the moonstone necklace on! That piece looks amazing! :-o

I will try to do a neck shot soon- give me a week! Everything is taking mich longer after covid.

You had me curious!!!! Here are neck shots! I would like to wear it more often. It feels like armour! I am really sensitive to things close to my neck though - I am an HSP 20220919_180626.jpg

My gorgeous Southern Cross constellation necklace. 18kt - and heavy - with somewhere around .8 - .9ctw of very nice diamonds on a 30" 18kt chain. Being Australian, this locket reminds me of home. The diamond on the back is to represent the constellation's pointer star. I recently had the prongs reconfigured as I wasn't happy with the original iteration, but there's photos here of both.

And with new prongs:

And lastly, a perspective shot. I should probably put this in the perspective thread, but figured it might be useful here so people could see how it hangs. This is my standard, day-to-day jewelry.

@mrs-b Would you mind telling me how many grams the locket alone is? I’m thinking of a locket and wondering if it’s solid enough…

45.5gms - without the chain or diamonds. It's HEAVY. I was originally going to use a premade antique locket - but it wasn't nearly sturdy enough. Without being too specific - even without the diamonds, this cost thousands and thousands to make. If I hadn't wanted this all my life, I wouldn't have done it; I could have had something lovely - or even something similar - for a fraction of the price. Mind you, people here pay way more for all sorts of things - and if diamond necklaces are your thing, this could be a bargain by comparison, depending on what you're considering.

Wowza!!! 45 grams! I had no idea it was that heavy! No I just saw an antique one I liked and it’s about 9g and was just mulling it over. So yes the weight of yours is in another stratosphere lol.
