At the turn of the twentieth century, a surge of lunar and mystical interest galvanized into a brief trend of "man in the moon" themed jewelry. This Edwardian fad usually included a moonstone carved into the shape of a face and diamonds to evoke twinkling stars. Our plaintive moonman is encircled with a diamond-encrusted crescent moon.  

Age: contemporary.  Made by hand in New York City.  
Materials: 14k white and yellow gold.  Nine white diamonds total 12ctw.  Carved moonstone face is 8mm.

Lead Time/ Terms of Sale: Please allow 6 weeks for us to build this ring to your exact specifications. While it can be resized in the future (for an additional fee of $90), it is considered a special custom order and therefore is FINAL SALE. It is non-returnable and not eligible for exchange.  




Seeing faces or figures where there are actually none is a phenomenon called pareidolia. It's a function of the human brain that serves to fill in visual information using prior knowledge or experience. In the case of the moon, depending on the hemisphere from which you view it and the culture from which you come, you might see a pair of hands, a banyan tree, a rabbit, or in the case of Europe and the United States, a man.
