The Crescent Moon Necklace

 The Crescent Moon Necklace

 The crescent moon necklace is a beautiful layering piece that looks lovely worn alone or layered with other charm necklaces. Wear the crescent moon necklace alone or layer it with a small pendant necklace or two on an eighteen or sixteen -inch cable chain. To create a longer, more dramatic necklace, add a longer chain up to twenty-six inches in length. Depending on your preference, the necklace can be worn long or short depending on your style and occasion.

 The crescent moon was a popular symbol during the Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian eras. The Victorians perfected the art of symbolism in jewellery and found many different meanings in motifs, gems, and other elements. The crescent moon is associated with spirituality and is also associated with the yin to the yang symbol in Chinese philosophy. The two are often interpreted as opposites, but have different symbolic meanings.

 Another popular moon necklace is the Serpent Moon pendant. This pendant features two snakes intertwined and gradually morphs into a crescent moon. Like the moon, this necklace shares the symbolism of transformation and renewal. It also alludes to the ouroboros, a symbol of balance between opposites. A solid sterling silver chain is available with a 16", eighteen-inch, and twenty-inch option.
