SUN RING JEWELRY: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW & HOW TO
THE HISTORY OF SUN RINGS
The sun was another powerful symbol throughout time, representing light and clarity and the life force. It is also associated with strength, energy and the power one can find within oneself. We see more sun motifs as we enter the Art Nouveau period and then again in the mid-20th century.
Reaching in to the 20th century; from Edwardian to that time when charms were having a heyday, French and U.S. jewelry markets saw the introduction of sun and moon charms that read “This be your lucky star” and “etoile d’amour” (Star of Love). They were yet another twist on the classic Sun, Moon and Stars jewelry theme.
The mid-twentieth century through the 70s also saw this trend move into all yellow gold with man in the moon lockets, sun god coin-discs and an update on compasses as medallions with stars in the center. The attention to the sky also morphs into the astrological from constellations to star signs
The symbolism from the Georgian era and beyond is still being translated into magical and imaginative jewelry designs for the modern woman. At Monica Rich Kosann, our crescent moon necklaces and Sun, Moon, and Stars charm necklaces and lockets are being styled to be worn alone or layered together. If they become part of your own jewelry story, please make a wish, feel empowered, and live life to the moon and back.
