Moonglow is a form of lucite that first gained popularity in the 1940s and 50s. Moonglow gets its name due to its moon-like shine and shimmer when light hits its surface. It has a moonstone, almost cats' eye look that seems it has its own inner light.

Moonglow lucite was made into earrings, bangle bracelets, beads, buttons, and man-made cabochons that were set into earrings and brooches. Moonglow came in many colors ranging from bright sunshine yellows, bold blues, radiant reds, soft pastels to deep emerald greens. Although moonglow was primarily fashionable during the 40s and 50s, it continued to be used in jewelry until the 1960s.

Moonglow is comprised of acrylic resin and of heat-set plastic. This process was called "thermosetting." Unlike today's comtemporary plastics that feel hollow and insubstantial, vintage lucite, especially moonglow, has a nice weight to it. It feels strong and cool against the skin.

If you are a fan of moonglow, I have several other pieces and will be adding more.

There are several vintage and antique Earrings in the Earrings and the Bakelite, Lucite, Other Plastics Studio Categories.

There are also other antique and vintage costume and plastic jewelry (bakelite, lucite, celluloid, and figurals), collectibles, books, art, glass, china, kitchen, home decor, and retro pieces in the store.
