Crescent Moon and Pentacle Stud Earrings
in Sterling Silver. Measures: 1/4 inch.
A crescent shape is a symbol or emblem used to represent the lunar phase in the first quarter (the "sickle moon"), or by extension a symbol representing the Moon itself. It is used as the astrological symbol for the Moon, and hence as the alchemical symbol for Silver.
A Christian-origin divination system, the pentacle has early symbolism rooted in the Tarot. Used for the suit of coins, it represents the Element of Earth. Wicca and other NeoPagan religions borrowed this tool for Ceremonial Magick.
