The moon-shape pendant is inspired by ancient Slavic moon amulet (also know as “lunula”). It is a crescent moon shaped pendant that was worn by girls already in ancient Roman culture, the tradition that was also adopted by the Slavic and Viking people. Girls ideally wore them as an protective amulet, but it also symbolized fertility and prosperity.
They are handmade in 95% silver and are hand stamped on surface with various patterns (spirals, flower pattern, hammer strikes). You can choose between 5 different design.
The moon amulet is about 2×2 cm, the necklace is 45cm long.
All our silver products are created in 95-98% Silver which is typical of the Thai Karen hill-tribe artisans, who have been using traditional tools and techniques for centuries. The Karen are a group of ethnic peoples who reside primarily in southern and southeastern Burma and in northern and north-eastern Thailand. Thai and Burmese hill tribes can be traced back to the 12th century when they are said to have originated from Tibet.
With a higher silver content than sterling silver, Karen silver has a weight, bright satin color and feel, all of its own. Every piece is handmade and individual.
The necklace comes with a traditional Thai package that can be a lovely gift or just simply jewelry storage. We send all our packages with tracking number for safer shipping.
