Crescent Moon Phase RingHarold Jewelry
The Crescent Moon Silver ring with phases of the Moon hand embossed inside is a great way to wear a reminder of what is up in the sky above. This Sterling Silver ring is an effortless way to display the phases of the moon.
This ring shows the five phases of the Moon in the order they appear in the sky. From right to left with the full moon in the center: Waxing Crescent, First Quarter, Full, Last Quarter, and Waning Crescent.
The Moon Phases Explained:
Waxing Crescent: Comes after new Moon. The bright portion of the Moon is increasing, but is less than half (or first quarter).
First Quarter: Sometimes called "Half-Moon", this happens when the Moon is at a 90 degree angle with the Earth and the Sun. Half of the Moon is bright and half is dark.
Full: Sun, Moon and Earth are aligned with the Moon on the opposite side of the Earth, so it is fully bright to us.
Last Quarter: Sometimes called "Half-Moon", this happens when the Moon is at a 90 degree angle with the Earth and the Sun. Half of the Moon is bright and half is dark.
Waning Crescent: The bright portion of the Moon is decreasing, and is less than half (last quarter). Comes before new Moon.
Dimensions: Crescent with Phases: 12.6mm wide x 25mm long | Ring Shank: 4.15mm wide
Sterling Silver: Is Nickel- and Lead-free and a sturdy metal that will patina with time giving it more character and a beautiful antique look. It can be easily polished with a polishing cloth to restore its original lustre.
