What makes this Election Day so different than all of the others? Politics aside, it happens to be the same day as the last total lunar eclipse blood moon—and it won’t fall on Election Day again until 2394 (i.e., the only one in our lifetime). Unlike a solar eclipse, which represents new beginnings, a lunar eclipse represents the completion of a chapter or a change of course. Considered to be incredibly transformative, lunar eclipses are often credited for bringing about sudden change. What that means for politics, we’ll just have to wait and see; but for now, we’ve rounded up some of the best jewels that channel the energy of this year’s lunar eclipse, both literally and spiritually.
A New York–based designer often inspired by nature, Danielle Marks took a comprehensive look at all of the phases of the moon when creating this eclipse necklace. And although the lunar eclipse was a blood moon, this necklace (with its contrasting onyx and white mother-of-pearl) gets the sentiment across perfectly.
Emulating the red shade of the lunar eclipse’s blood moon, this Victorian crescent brooch incorporates rubies against a row of diamonds.
There’s always more than meets the eye when it comes to pieces from Foundrae. This handcrafted medallion, for example, symbolizes wholeness, particularly through its black pearl positioned as the moon, which represents healing and hope. It’s a fantastic reminder of the energy to bring into a lunar eclipse.
Showcasing an incredible, dimensional oval-cut Mexican opal, M.Spalten’s Lunar Orbit ring radiates the celestial energy associated with eclipses.
New York–based jeweler Karma El Khalil has credited the moon for giving her a sense of connection with the rest of the world in times of isolation. And these moon-entwined earrings offer that same sense of interconnectedness.
