Celestial jewelry is definitely on trend these days.  So I did a little research into some of the meaning behind the symbols.

Celestial imagery has appeared in art, literature, architecture and jewelry since the beginning of human history. For centuries, the contents of the sky was a realm of mystical and beautiful unknowns.

Romans and Greeks connected the moon to lunar gods, the only way they could explain the lights in the sky. It was emblematic of immortality, they believed that if you gave your romantic partner a crescent moon during a full moon that they would love you forever!

Throughout the Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian periods, a  crescent moon and star together were a sweet statement of love, and where we can derive the phrase, “love you to the moon and back.”

Star symbolism is similarly old in its origins, often carrying the meaning of light and clarity, especially the sun which is the brightest of all the stars. They were also symbolic of, and indeed actually used for direction, as travelers of old often navigated exclusively by the stars at night.

Stars themselves came to mean good luck and something to be wished upon, to this day we still wish on stars in hopes of achieving our dreams. This is most likely an evolution of navigation and the idea that stars would always help to lead you to your desired destination and not lead you astray.

Whatever celestial symbolism means to you, wear them with joy, enlightenment, and keep on wishing upon a star!
