Celestial jewelry seems to be the rage today, but have you ever wondered the meaning behind these pretty and intricate designs.

In Greek Mythology, the crescent moon is said to represent Selene the feminine moon goddess and symbolizes female empowerment.

The popularity of the crescent moon dates back to the Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian eras. During the Industrial Revolution period, there were changes happening in all fields and women started entering the workforce, laying the foundation of female rights and empowerment. The crescent moon was used to represent change, as the moon has multiple lunar phases.

In Chinese philosophy the moon is the yin to the sun’s yang, showing how the female moon and the male sun can perfectly balance each other despite being opposites.
