John Lennon’s lyrics “We All Shine On…Like The Moon, The Stars and The Sun” could have been attributed to these motifs in moon and stars jewelry throughout history. These iconic and symbolic emblems continue to shine in glimmering gold and sparkling diamonds or other precious stones. All three motifs date back to ancient civilizations and each has been associated with lore, legend, gods, and goddesses in different cultures and time periods.
The period in which they began to be most popular in jewelry was in the 19th century, first in the Georgian period and then as icons in Victorian times that still hold the same meaning in modern jewelry.
This gorgeous pendant features a moon and sun eclipse in 14k, with their unity resembling a star and combining all three motifs in one.
