I’m always on the lookout for new, unique jewelry. It seems like once there’s a new trend in jewelry and accessories, everyone is sporting it. Makes sense – if you’re buying your jewelry at fast-fashion retailers like Forever 21 or H&M, you buy what’s in style at the time, then throw it out when it tarnishes and go buy the next big trend.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve started to invest in nicer, higher-end jewelry. Sure, I still love my fun tarnishing Forever 21 leaf necklaces, but it’s much more professional to wear nice jewelry at the office or when at an event.
So lucky me, because Moonglow Jewelry fulfills both my criteria. Moonglow Jewelry is designed to celebrate life’s most cherished experiences. Their pieces feature phases of the moons, which are customizable to the exact day in time that you want to remember.
When I ordered the Mars 2 bracelet, I was asked to provide the exact two dates (Month, day and year) that I wanted represented. To be super mushy, I chose my birthday and my boyfriend’s birthday. Moonglow then customized my bracelet with the exact phases that Mars? two moons, Phobos and Deimos, had on those dates. It turns out that my birthday, February 2, had a waning gibbous moon, and Sean’s birthday, November 26, had a waxing gibbous moon.
My beautiful bracelet not only came completely customized, but also included two personalized date cards explaining more about the moon phases. It was so interesting to learn that people born under the Waning Gibbous moon tend to be caring, desire to help others, are eager to make the world a better place, and remain strong in the face of adversity, uncertainty and unforeseen obstacles. Those born under the Waxing Gibbous moon are quick thinkers and grand philosophers that love to analyze situations and come up with solutions that benefit everyone, and need to be around people. It’s crazy how well these blurbs describe me and Sean!
Whether or not you’re into moon phases or any kind of astrology, Moonglow Jewelry is just plain beautiful. From birthstone necklaces to pieces featuring eclipses and orbits, chokers, rings, dangly earrings and bold cuffs, men and women can choose any kind of jewelry to adorn with moons.
And, considering the high quality of the pieces and the sweet customization they offer, Moonglow has outstanding prices. My bracelet retails for $70. I’ve worn it several times and it has not tarnished or chipped. These pieces are definitely good investments, and they also make intimate and thoughtful gifts.
