The crescent moon shape has something sensual, seductive, and feminine. Could it be because of the shape, which remind us of the female body that changes continuously in a lifetime? Perhaps the meaning behind the crescent moon influences how we perceive this beautiful shape. In Greek mythology, Selene is the goddess of the moon, and according to some renowned artists and historians crescent moons may symbolize Selene. The ancient stories and symbolism ensures that the crescent moon is associated with female empowerment, but also womanhood, fertility and intuitiveness.

So ofcourse this brooch is destined to be given the name 'Selene'. This antique diamond crescent that sits well on the left or right just over the bust, is more than just a brooch. This collector's item is from an era where women began to fight for autonomy and recognition. During the WWI, men had to leave their jobs in order to fight in the war. Gradually more and more women entered the workforce and it brought women a sense of independence. In line with this, fashion had transformed from the relative formality and restriction of the Edwardian era and the war time years to fun and practical styles (think of the ever classy, feminine and unconventional Coco Chanel) that highlighted the freedom of modern women and allowed them to participate in activities that were previously for men only.

Wear this brooch to channel your inner Selene and have the courage to show the world that you are indeed a Goddess ;)
