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

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.

I've enjoyed seeing all of your lovely celestial pieces!

Temple St. Clair has a line of celestial pieces. I hope to add a couple to my collection eventually!

But for now, the closest I can come is her blue moonstone Sea Star pendant TSC Sea Star 1.jpg .....

Went overseas for a few months and came home to this. I haven’t seen her in the sun yet, crappy guest room lighting at 10pm. Normally I like brooches as they are, but this will be rhodium plated and converted to a necklace ala JPie. C5A37E95-B6C4-4C69-8711-CA32BB8725E6.jpeg

I’ve been wanting an antique crescent moon, but they always seem to get sold before I can snag it! I’m obsessed with oxidized gold lately so this was my consolation for missing out on all the antique ones!

thank you! I'm undecided about the larger oval connector. I like when it's east west but just with weight distribution it slides N/S lol
