Back on July 20, 1969, when Apollo 11 landed on the moon, it was “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” as Neil Armstrong famously said during the national broadcast of the landmark event. If you’re feeling nostalgic about this moment, or wistful for a time when science was celebrated and respected, you may consider investing in the new Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch produced in collaboration with the Met or bidding on a vintage Omega Speedmaster in tomorrow’s Sotheby’s auction.
You might also find yourself drawn to moon-themed jewelry, from man-in-the-moon moonstones to crescent shapes, dangling pearls, or a cascade of stars, clouds, and other celestial motifs. Designers have been embracing the intergalactic planetary story for a while now, but the timing seems right to showcase some particularly compelling examples—here are 19 to remind you of the possibilities.
