Hecate's Diadem Moonstone Necklace.

$280.00

Inspired by our Talon Moon series, this piece is named after the goddess Hecate, represented here by the diadem shape she is occasionally depicted as wearing in art history. This crescent crown, formed by Owl Talons, speaks to her role as a Goddess of the Moon in both its crescent shape, as well as its full moon shape, shown here by the Moonstone set within the crescent. 

Considered one of the ancient goddesses, (and in some tales), the only Titan allowed to retain her authority after the Olympians seized control, Hecate is a triple faced goddess associated with witchcraft, the Underworld, specters and the dead. She is also well known as the Goddess of crossroads, symbolically viewed as the liminal space between worlds. Because of these attributes, she has an ability to accept the strange and shadowy nature of people, making her a personal favorite of mine.  

Moonstone is closely tied to the moon, with some cultures believing the stone is solidified moon rays, while others think of them as embodiments of the moon's tears. Acting as a kind of Psychic armor, it is thought to protect its wearer from not only dark nights, but dark times; it helps sooth grief, loss, and other emotional turbulence. 

Moonstone is known for its powerful psychic abilities. Used to protect empaths & sensitives from absorbing other people's emotions, it is also is known to be used during meditation for connecting to ones inner selves. As a romantic stone, it is known to strengthen the bonds between lovers when given as gifts, especially during the full moon. 

As they are entirely natural, earth made stones, color and clarity will vary from stone to stone. Moonstone often has a milky appearance and natural inclusions that appear as lines or inner 'cracks.’ The flash will contain shades of blue, violet or teal, and occasionally hints of gold.  If you have any concerns over the stone that will be chosen for you, please contact us after making your purchase so we may best assist you.

 

The moonstones are hand cut and therefore may have very slight differences in size and may have small signs of the carver's hands along the edges. These are not fabricated by a machine, they are made by hand and therefore aren't uniformly perfect. The photographs accurately portray the quality of the stones and the cuts. 

A sterling bezel holds the moonstone so both the domed front and smooth back are viewed, allowing the stone to "breathe".  Entirely made in sterling silver, this piece is paired with our signature bar link chain, oxidized to our favorite shade of gloomy gray and polished to highlight the silver underneath.
