lunar phases crescent necklace with moonstone
I've always lived my life on the sea and let my thoughts and emotions get pulled with the tides.
This one-of-a-kind design features a hand-etched sterling silver crescent. I finished the design by hand-cutting the phases of the moon out and setting a polished moonstone cabochon in the center, as the full moon. The 18 inch long brass chain allows the pendant to rest perfectly upon the chest. This is an eye-catching necklace and can easily be dressed up or down.
The crescent is one of the oldest symbols known to humanity. Together with the sun, it appeared on Akkadian seals as early as 2300 BC. In ancient symbolism, the moon represents the beyond. It is often considered to rule the senses and emotions. The Moon serves as an illumination in the darkness, and helps us track the passing of time, we can accurately predict the moon phase and have been able to do so for thousands of years, so the moon can represent emotional and spiritual growth and journeys, and also the emergence of understanding.
