9k Victorian Forget-Me-Not Embellished Crescent Brooch + 9k Victorian Albert Chain
The crescent moon motif became most popular in jewelry in Georgian through Victorian times in brooches and then morphed into other styles such as pendants. Crescent moons celebrate the feminine moon goddess and therefore are associated with female empowerment. It also symbolizes change, as it turns into a full moon and then back, similar to the ebb and flow of life. Victorian brides wore brooches with a crescent moon cradling a flower on their honeymoon. These sweet styles are called ‘honeymoon brooches,’ which were said to represent ‘the magic of the moon and the sweet nectar of the flower.’
This brooch features embellishments of forget-me-nots, making it a fitting example of the times and even that much more special in any look or collection. Use it as a brooch on any shirt, a hairpin, or even a pendant - either way, don't let this special treasure slip away.
