Our downward-pointing small hammered crescent moon charm is crafted from .88mm thick .925 sterling silver and plated in satin-finished 24Kt yellow gold.
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 Southwestern 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. The irregular texture offers a shimmering, organic look.
