Our sterling silver moon goddess necklace offers a selection of gorgeous materials set into a wonderfully iconographic statement piece that can be worn as an ivory pin or pendant.
Our black mussel and fossilized ivory moon goddess necklace features a pendant and a pin back so you can wear it as two different types of jewelry.
This goddess is as compelling as she is versatile with her symbolic setting and bold, contemporary design details. The symbol of the moon goddess can be found in virtually every tradition throughout history from the Celts to ancient Greek, South American, Indian, and even African mythology. She is the goddess of the divine feminine, fertility, harvest, growth, protection, and the inner journey.
The goddess wears a formal headdress, signifying her stature, and carries a mother of pearl carved crescent moon that can be seen as either waxing or waning, depending on its orientation. She is the goddess of the moon in all its phases. The moon symbolism is carried through to the rainbow moonstone accent stone she wears at her throat. Rainbow moonstone is the stone of mystery and hidden truth, and it catches the light in a multi-hued opalescent reflection of icy aqua tones.
The moon goddess' face is carved from fossilized walrus tusk, a material some 500 to 3,000 years old that has lain buried for centuries. There the walrus tusk accretes a range of warm cream to caramel or deep cocoa tones, creating a distinctive earthy effect. Native peoples gather it for carving, sale, and trade, and it is a highly prized ancient accent in carved ivory pendants, ivory pins, and all fossilized ivory jewelry.
