Crescent Moon Necklace
One of the most powerful symbols in existence, the crescent moon (also called the waning or waxing moon) is a long held symbol of life, death, change and fertility. Crescent moons are associated with female empowerment and the cultural celebration of the moon goddess. This symbolism leads the beautiful sinewy shape to appear in countless pieces of art, cultures and religions the world over.
Our handmade crescent moon pendant, crafted entirely by hand from recycled sterling silver and 14k gold, offers not only the beautiful golden crescent but also the glimpse of the full moon behind it. This becomes a daily reminder that amidst change is the bigger picture, the fullness of life and love. We may only see the bright and beautiful crescent in the night sky, but the moon is always there, waiting for its next phase.
The meaningful nature of this piece doesn't stop at the front, however. On the back of this pendant is a hand engraving and stone of your choice - pictured is one where a name and peridot birthstone is used - the customer ordered this to remember her mother Marilyn. Engrave the name of a beloved person, a mantra you want to remember, or anything your heart desires. Choose a stone that is your birthstone, the birthstone of a beloved person, or merely a symbolic stone for the message you want to hold dear.
