This exclusive Moon Phase Sterling Silver Necklace is inspired by a beautifully detailed moon phase dial from a clock in the collections of The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
Our necklace features a paste glass "moon face" cabochon encircled by small white crystal stones in the shape of a waxing crescent moon. The setting of the pendant is made of sterling silver with gold plate accents and intricate details, such as the star-shaped vents on the back and sides of the pendant. The chain is composed of silver links and two sizes of round white glass pearls echoing the stars in the night sky with a single gold plated silver star at the top of the pendant drop.
This stunning wearable piece of history makes a great addition to your Colonial Williamsburg jewelry collection and a truly unique gift you can only find at The Shops at Colonial Williamsburg.

Our Moon Phase Jewelry Collection takes inspiration from a clock dated to 1770 in the collections of The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation (Object # 1980-111,A). The clock is signed on the face "James Craig, Williamsburg." It is the only known clock movement labeled by an artisan in Williamsburg or the surrounding area and was most likely an English movement retailed through Craig's shop. Colonial silversmiths commonly sold British imports in their shops. The moon depicted with a face can be seen on several other tall clocks in our collections.
