Handcrafted and hammered 14k gold filled or sterling silver crescent moon pendant on your choice of chain.
There are a ton of mass-produced crescent pendants here on Etsy that are strung onto a plated chain. They do look pretty and they certainly are inexpensive. If you are looking for fast fashion then those may work for you. This crescent pendant is not one of those. I would love to tell you about the labor of love that goes into a pendant like this crescent.
It starts off as a piece of thick wire. It's a solid tube. The wire is formed around a mandrel and shaped almost into a circle. It takes a bit of fitness since the wire is thick. After some shaping, the piece does not look like anything but a curved piece of wire. Where the crescent begins to take shape is in the hammering. Each strike with a chasing hammer pushes the metal, one way or another, creative curves in all the right places. A little more hammering is needed to create a dappled look on the front. Next comes a little filing (but not too much on the gold!) and polish, polish, polish! The best part is seeing the brilliant shine take form with a little rouge polishing compound flying fast on a felt wheel.
With all that said, each one of these crescents will be unique and handmade just for you. If you are looking for something you won't see every day then you found your necklace.

GOLD FILLED & STERLING SILVER
Gold Filled contains 1/20th or 5% 14k gold (real gold). The gold is pressure bonded to a core, typically jewelers brass. Gold filled jewelry will wear and look just like 14k gold when treated properly, lasting many years. Plated jewelry has a much thinner layer of gold and is not as durable. Sterling Silver is another highly durable, quality metal consisting of 92.5% silver. Both 14k gold filled and sterling silver are great for sensitive skin.

Jewelry is shipped in either a white shipping box or, for smaller items, a padded envelope. All jewelry is shipped in a plastic bag which is then placed inside a branded, grey, sateen pouch.

All geodes, druzy, crystals and raw gems are unique and one of a kind. I do my best to pair geodes and druzy for earrings based on color or size. With that being said, when you order a pair of earrings the druzy will NOT be identical. This is what I find interesting and beautiful about these earrings. Geode slices are delicate. Take care not to drop them on hard surfaces and they will last for years to come.
Raw Gemstones - Each one is unique in size, color, texture, and shape. I take great care to select stones that work well in each piece of jewelry.
