Moon and Star Ring
- Moon and Star Ring – .5x.25″
A crescent shape is a symbol or emblem used to represent the lunar phase in the first quarter (the “sickle moon”), or by extension a symbol representing the Moon itself.
In Hinduism, Lord Shiva is often shown wearing a crescent moon on his head symbolising that the lord is the master of time and is himself timeless.
It is used as the astrological symbol for the Moon, and hence as the alchemical symbol for silver. It was also the emblem of Diana/Artemis, and hence represented virginity. In Roman Catholic Marian veneration, it is associated with the Virgin Mary.
From its use as roof finial in Ottoman era mosques, it has also become associated with Islam.
Its ancient association with Ishtar/Astarte and Diana is preserved in the Moon (as symbolised by a crescent) representing the female principle (as juxtaposed with the Sun representing the male principle), and (Artemis-Diana being a virgin goddess) especially virginity and female chastity.
A five-pointed star has always been a symbol of excellence. Whether part of a coat of arms, a flag, or a military uniform. You probably remember getting gold star stickers in school when you did particularly well on an assignment.
Stars have also come to signify stardom, you’ve probably seen the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And of course, they also symbolize the actual stars in the sky.
