Modern-era jewelry, also known as the Contemporary Era, spans a significant amount of time starting in the 1950s and spanning to the present day. Unlike more micro trends like Art Nouveau or Art Deco, modern estate jewelry encompasses diverse styles spanning many decades of transformation. In the 1990s, the joyful excess of mid-century designs was scaled back for sleeker and more modest styles.
Moonstone is a powerful gem that can mean a lot of things with its diverse healing effects. It is a balancing gem, a birthstone, a lucky stone, a sacred crystal, a piece of eccentric jewelry, and a wedding gift. But one thing rings the loudest, moonstone is from the magic of the moon. This gorgeous pair of earrings feature a central moonstone surrounded by detailed gold work that stands out in any ear stack or collection.
