The crescent moon hides a mystical symbolism. We reveal the meaning of the crescent moon necklace and the key piece that will bring you all its energy.
Our shared story with the moon
Have you ever wondered what’s the meaning behind a crescent moon necklace?
From an early age, the Pascual sisters have been fascinated by the night sky, the moon and the hidden symbolism of celestial bodies and stars. It’s not surprising that these have become a constant source of inspiration in the design process of Maria Pascual’s jewelry.
The moon is a magnetic and powerful star capable of monopolizing all of our attention. How many of us have been left spellbound contemplating its beauty? Whether we look at it from our bedroom window or stare at it lying on the grass on a summer night, its brightness is surely captivating.
We search for the familiar silhouette of the moon as it rises and sets in the night sky. Undoubtedly, this star has always held a fascination for each of us. Moreover, it has been an element of inspiration for many throughout history.
Most artists and highly creative people are night owls. In fact, they tend to be more inspired at night and leave sleep on the back burner when focusing on their projects.
It is that sense of wonder that has always been at the heart of our love for jewelry in the shape of a moon, star or other celestial body. We all see the same moon, we all see the same stars, we all see the same sun. They are elements that transcend cultures, barriers and are part of our shared mythology.
The Crescent Moon Necklace’s meaning
The crescent moon was known to symbolize femininity, fertility, intuition, female psyche and power. In Greek mythology, the goddess Selene represented the moon. Her name derives from selas, the Greek word that translates as light.
Legend has it that Selene drove her chariot of white horses across the night sky. This way, she gave the evening light with her imposing trail. Perhaps it is our universal desire for light in our lives that also drives our love for the moon and all its symbols.
Furthermore, for many centuries it has been believed that wearing an amulet in the shape of a crescent moon will bring magical dreams to its bearer.
A crescent moon necklace tells our own unique story. We turn to those things we find empowering when we see ourselves in the shadow of moonlight under a night sky. Everything we link to the moon is mysterious. Yet, it is an essential in our lives and visits us every night. A mystery hidden in plain sight. Maybe that’s why we find it so mesmerizing.
