While it’s fairly common knowledge that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and opals are often regarded as the source of all mysticism, moonstones tend to get overlooked in the process. However; Canadian jewelry designer Melanie Auld is changing that.
Melanie Auld’s jewelry collections are bold and timeless and her latest Resort Collection incorporates heavily this often forgotten gem. Moonstones have not only been linked with moon deities, but have historically been thought to be magically formed from moonlight itself.
The stones possess an internal structure perfectly suited to scattering and reflecting light, and one close look at the stunning jewel easily explains why it’s so often associated with natural beauty. At one angle it can look like a piece of white ice with many layers but when the light hits the stone at different angles, moonstones reflect colors ranging from blue to purple and pink.
