    I bought this small crescent moon applique together with some other victorian jewelry. The crescent moon was used a lot in Victorian times. It has different meanings: death and rebirth, symbol for the godess Isis. They used it in brooches and other jewelry.
    My moon is not marked but it tested as silver. I have no idea what it was used for. It has no marks from a former clasp or anything whatsoever. Maybe it was an unfinished piece? So I just added a jumpring and for now I wear it as a pendant. Maybe I will change it if I find out what it was originally intended for.
    So does anyone have an idea?
    Thanks a lot!

      Do you think it might have been part of another piece? Pretty.

      I'm not sure what it was. The lady I bought it from had a lot of old textile too so maybe it wasn't intended to be a jewel in the first place.

      Thanks Thoscahaba and valentino97 for liking my crescent moon.
      I think I just got an idea what I will use it for now. I will send a pic via mail, Val.
