sterling mandala crescent necklace

sterling mandala crescent necklace

This one-of-a-kind design features a sterling crescent that I pierced and hand-cut with an intricate mandala design. Finished with a faceted amethyst cabochon in the center. The 18 inch long sterling silver 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.
