Inspired by the peace and tranquility of a calm, dark night, these earrings feature an ornate Celtic moon with a face, quietly gazing at the star in front of it.
The moon has a rich history of folklore across various cultures that give meaning to the images we see on its surface.
In the west, we see a man on the moon. In China, they see the Moon Rabbit, who is pounding the elixir of immortality for the goddess Chang'e. Still other cultures see the silhouette of a woman, a frog, a moose, a buffalo or a dragon.
Though the shapes and their stories may differ from one culture to another, what unites them all is that they have long been a way for people to understand the moon, a way to add a layer of meaning to the glowing orb that passes through our sky every night.
Comes with our inspirational quote card, 'Moonlight is the proof that there will always be light in the darkness.'
