Trend File: Half-Moon Rising

Moons, stars, planets, and other celestial entities are among jewelry design’s most celebrated motifs. The Victorians, in particular, were mad about the heavens—jewelry etched with moons, stars, and constellations abounded in the era.

In contemporary jewelry design, the hottest celestial motif is undoubtedly the crescent moon.

The artfully curved shape has made a huge comeback in a number of modern jewelry collections—adding a witchy, bohemian allure to everything from cuffs and brooches to pendants and stud earrings.

Here are a few of my favorite crescent-moon pieces currently on the market:

Crescent moon signet ring, $698; Pyrrha 

 

Yellow gold Mini Moon bracelet, $1,990; Elisa Solomon 

 

Rainbow Moonstone Hematite Crescent Moon necklace, $5,400; Andrea Fohrman (also at top)

 

Wandering Star ring, $7,320; Sofia Zakia 

 

Emerald Moon necklace, $7,750; Jacquie Aiche 

 

Moon Phase studs, $1,200; Pamela Love 

 

Juju necklace, $750; Feathered Soul
