A late Victorian opal and diamond crescent pendant, set with eleven, graduating, oval cabochon cut opals, with pairs of old-cut diamonds set between, in grain settings, with a cut down side and pierced gallery, mounted in gold, circa 1888, with a plaque marked l.b.88, on a modern, 18ct gold trace chain. In Victorian symbolism the crescent or new moon symbolised a new relationship. Hopeful it will "wax" into matrimony.
