Lovely antique Victorian or Edwardian 14K yellow gold crescent moon pin. One of the oldest symbols known to man, the crescent moon dates back to the second millennium BC. The crescent moon celebrates the feminine moon goddess and is associated with female empowerment.
The Victorian tradition was for the Groom to give a gift to the Bride on their wedding day. The crescent moon pin was a period favorite for this tradition symbolizing spirituality of the bride and was worn by the bride on their honeymoon. A fabulous gift for the something old category for the bride to be. My daughter in law received one of these for her "something old" wedding gift and loved it!

All of my gold and silver is authenticated before listing for sale. This piece has been xray analyzed using a Niton XRF Spectrometer to ensure the metal makeup meets industry standards for solid gold jewelry. Where appropriate, acid testing has been used as well. You will not buy gold or silver from me that does not meet the industry standards for how the piece is marked unless noted in the listing.
Gemstones have been tested using a presidium gem tester and have not been reviewed, except where noted, by a gemologist so please assume they are lab produced stones as my opinions are only my opinions. Diamonds have been verified using a presidium diamond tester, they have not been sized or graded by a gemologist. All measurements of stones have been done using a digital caliper, are approximate and may not be exact.
