The Victorian era was incredibly thoughtful and symbolic. Every aspect of life during that time, from clothing to tapestries to paintings, was brimming with symbolism. Jewelry in that period was no exception - be it on pendants, brooches, bracelets, rings, and more – it imbued symbolism. A specific symbol in Victorian jewelry was the crescent moon. Crescent moons symbolize the feminine moon goddess, and as such, are associated with female empowerment. The moon also symbolizes change, for just as the moon cycles through phases, so does life.
This gorgeous ring can shine on its own, with the help of its five Australian opals that shine beautifully in any light. Additionally, the floating-like diamond in the center of the crescent adds the sweetest touch. Wear this when you need to feel like the goddess you are (every day) and add a new treasure to your collection!
