Celestial Skies. Rainbow Moonstone & Pyrite Crescent Moon Earrings. Sterling Silver hand forged ear-wires and all wrapped together with Sterling Silver wire. The focus of these earring are the Pyrite crescent moons, which can be rotated so the points are in, out or both in the same direction. The ear-wires have a tiny Rainbow Moonstone bead which is echoed in the mobile drop at the bottom of the earring.
The name Pyrite derives from the Greek pyr or pyros, meaning “fire” for its ability to emit sparks when pieces are struck together or against a hard surface. Pyrite was highly prized by the native Indian tribes of the Americas as a healing stone of magic, and was polished into mirrors for gazing and divination. Before the 1800’s, it was favoured as a decorative stone, carved into rosettes, shoe buckles, rings, snuff boxes and other ornaments, and was extremely popular in England during the Victorian Age for its use in jewellery.
As a talisman, Pyrite is a unique protector, drawing energy from the Earth through the physical body and into the aura creating a defensive shield against negative energies. It stimulates the Second and Third Chakras, enhancing will power and the ability to see behind facades to what is real.
Moonstone has been used in jewellery for thousands of years. The Romans admired moonstone and believed that it came from the rays of the moon made solid. It has always been a sacred stone in India with a special significance for lovers. More recently it was a popular choice for jewellers in the Art Nouveau period.
Since earliest times, Moonstone has been a tangible connection to the magic of the moon and the Mother Goddess. Her strength lies in her gentleness, and her ability to experience, process, and neutralize her feelings.
An amulet of protection for travellers, a gift of lovers for passion and as a channel for prophecy. In Europe was believed to reconcile estranged lovers and to cure sleeplessness. Moonstone is known as the Traveller's Stone for the protection it affords, especially at night, and because of its uplifting quality of hope, has long been worn as a talisman to enhance the personality.

*Due to the integral design of the bead and ear findings a direct swap for non-pierced finding is not available. But if you like this design I could make you something very similar with a non-pierced finding (the non-pierced find would be silver plated).
*If you like these earrings but would like to wear them through a gauged tunnel, I can make a suitable finding to wear through your tunnels.
