Celestial themes have been popular in jewelry for millennia. Comets, stars, the sun and the moon are all well represented in canon of personal adornment. The waxing moon was particular favorite in the mid to late 19th century and was (unsurprisingly) seen as a symbol of new beginnings. This exquisitely minimal Victorian crescent moon is made in 14k gold and set with a single pearl.
14k gold (tests), 4.5mm split pearl
1 7/8" x 1 1/4" width
