The dark oxidized sterling silver bar pendant showcases the shapes of some of the moon's phases, from waxing cresent to full to waning cresent. (It should be noted that while artistically pleasing, the orientation of the illuminated edge of the phases to the full moon is actually consistent with appearance in the Southern hemisphere.) A waxing moon is an intermediate phase leading to a full moon and a waning moon is an intermediate phase past full moon. The sterling silver pendant with smooth, luminous mother of pearl shell insert is suspended from a multistrand stainless steel wire necklace with sleek torsion clasp.

Cost: $51.00 USD
