Glowing cat's eye moonstones totaling approximately 30.00 carats are set in these elegant earrings by famed American jewelry designer Henry Dunay. Moonstones are renowned for their "play of color," or schiller, and remarkable luminescence, and this sizable pair is particularly brilliant.  Adding to the rarity of the regal jewels is the presence of the "cat's eye" phenomenon, otherwise known as chatoyancy. This gemstone phenomenon occurs when light reflects off of small, precisely aligned rutile inclusions in the stone to create a marvelous effect. The lustrous moonstones are crowned by approximately 1.15 carats of glittering white diamonds, complemented by their classic platinum setting.

Known for his elegant and visionary creations, Henry Dunay is one of the most celebrated contemporary jewelers in the world, with creations renowned for their high-quality gemstones and harmonious composition. Bold and timeless, this pair of earrings exemplifies Dunay’s glamorous designs.
