Just this year alone, multitude of astronomical events have already happened: Mercury in retrograde, a total lunar eclipse, supermoons, and a possible Geminid meteor shower in December. These astronomical events have been happening for centuries, birthing celestial-inspired jewellery. Even if you don’t believe in the stars, these jewellery pieces are still intricate and sparkly — and, the trend for it is growing.
Perhaps it was Gabrielle Chanel who first pioneered said trend by releasing the brand’s first high jewellery collection in 1932 named Bijoux de Diamants, inspired by her love of the stars, comets and suns. Tiffany & Co then followed suit with its iconic Stars and Moons necklace.
Fashion giants soon started incorporating more of these into their collection, including both jewellery and clothing. Zodiac signs and even tarot cards are starting to be interpreted into jewellery design, successfully bringing in the century-old trend into the 21st century.
There’s no need to wish upon the stars anymore when you have these celestial-inspired jeweller pieces adorning your body.
