Handcrafted from 18 carat yellow gold, this black enamel moon studded with multiple coloured gems is the versatile, celestial pendant in your jewellery wardrobe. Designed to be creatively combined and threaded onto our base range and mixed with other pendants for multiple layering possibilities.
The spiritual significance of the crescent moon or ‘luna’ has ancient roots in feminine empowerment, representing the feminine moon goddess, Selene, in Greek mythology, the curves of Diana, the goddess of hunting’s bow in Roman mythology and the female yin to the sun’s male yang in ancient Chinese philosophy. Today, it is also widely recognised as a motif of dreams and new beginnings – a positive energy talisman. Traditionally, jewellery embellished with or formed as crescent moons were given to a loved one on a full moon, when, legend has it, they would always hold the gift giver deep in their hearts.
Alemdara jewellery is designed to be worn every day – to pair beautifully with other favourite jewellery pieces or to be playfully and creatively combined with other jewels within the Alemdara collection. Each piece is handcrafted in the ancient markets of Istanbul, using techniques that have been passed down through generations. This piece has been certified in accordance with the Hallmarking Act 1973.
