Reach for the Stars This Holiday Season With These 9 Jewels



We’re no strangers to celestial jewelry here at JCK. It’s an ever-present style that ebbs and flows in demand, but never truly leaves us—and it’s one that I personally never tire of looking at, writing about, and coveting for my very own.

There’s never a wrong time to spotlight moon and star jewelry, but where stars are concerned especially, it feels extra right during the holiday season. Stars are a common icon in decorating—the star on top of the tree, to only name one iteration—and for decorating oneself, I can think of nothing more appropriate.

The versatility of a star’s meanings gives it another strong selling point. For me, I see anything dreamy and celestial as signifying the unknown and magical. But the icon, ranging from in number of points from five (mostly seen here) to twelve, can symbolize anything from pagan beliefs to the cycle of life and everything in between.

Sheriffs wear them, kids get them on their homework (gold star!), sailors look to the skies, asking the stars for direction. Much like their presence in the solar system, stars as symbols can be interpreted in seemingly infinite ways.

Here are nine starry jewels to close out 2017 (and to take into 2018 and beyond).
