The sun, moon and stars have provided inspiration for many a poet, philosopher and artist throughout the centuries, but recently they’ve become very much a focal point for jewellery too. Celestial necklaces, sun and moon earrings, rings emblazoned with stars – you name it, you can find it, with high street and demi fine jewellery brands offering an affordable route into the look.
So why are we so obsessed with celestial jewellery right now? Some designers have put it down to the events of the past couple of years, suggesting we take comfort in patterns that are bigger than ourselves – such as the movement of the moon, sun and stars – when we’re dealing with dark times down on planet Earth.
It helps that this type of jewellery is loved by celebrities and royals, too. In fact, when the Duchess of Cambridge attended the premiere for Top Gun: Maverick on 19 May, she caused an 100 per cent rise in demand for star earrings after fans noticed her Robinson Pelham diamond pair (according to Love The Sales).
For the more spiritual among us, there are also positive associations between celestial motifs and love, luck and protection, plus a sense of connection with other generations through these timeless, universal symbols.
Others will simply love the look of this oh-so-pretty sun, moon and star jewellery, and, given the gorgeous pieces below, we can totally get on board with that. Whether you’re shopping for a gift or simply want to treat yourself, it’s time to reach for the stars with our round-up of the best celestial jewellery.
