Add a mystical touch to your jewelry with this stunningly simple, downward-pointing 34x31x2.25mm crescent moon charm in .925 sterling silver. A crisp ridge down the center gives this piece extra depth and dimension, and echoes the sharp contours of the new or old moon.
Because of its association with and symbolism for growth, the 'crescent' shape became known as a symbol for fertility, and goddesses like Aphrodite are often depicted wearing a hair ornament in the shape of a crescent moon. In North African, Spanish, and later Native American silversmithing traditions, the downward-pointing crescent was an important design motif.
Wear this piece alone with a simple chain, or group with other charms for dramatic custom talisman jewelry! For extra color, the hollow back can be filled with cold-enamel tinted epoxy.
Height measurement includes 5mm soldered jump ring.
