Full Moon And Half Moon – Colors & Jewelry Explained
What has the moon to do with jewelry, you may ask?
Well, it's pretty straightforward – the earth's satellite serves as a huge inspiration for us!
We'll explain to you what exactly inspires us so much, but let us give you a little bit of input about the moon in general first (or skip it and jump to our full moon jewelry right away). Later on, we are going to cover a few selected pieces and the story of our lockets in more detail.

About The Moon In General
The moon has been in existence since primeval times, and it’s the second brightest body in the sky, of course after the sun. In addition, it’s the only natural satellite on earth.
One interesting thing about the moon is that it’s always in a synchronous rotation with the earth—this means that the same side of the moon is always facing towards the earth. The moon is known to cause tides—thus developing a rhythm, which has guided us for hundreds of years.
And the tides have gifted us with wonderful waves for surfing, too. We are mentioning this, because two our founders are passionate surfers.
When looking at the moon, you will notice that it appears as a full moon and sometimes as a half moon.
But, why does this happen?
First, it is essential to understand that the main reason why you see the moon is because of the sunlight reflecting back to us from the moon’s surface.
During its natural course, the moon will circle one time around the earth. In addition, you should note that one half of the moon is always lit—the part facing the sun.
However, the sunny part of the moon doesn’t always face towards the earth. And, as the moon orbits around the earth, we will see changes in the side of the moon that appears lit.
This is the main reason why you will see a full moon and half moon.
Another, probably way more fascinating thing about the moon are its varying colors. At times, you will notice that the moon appears in golden, pink, red, or silver light.
What causes these different appearances?
As highlighted earlier, it takes an average of 29 days for the moon to orbit around the earth, and both the moon and the earth are revolving around the sun.
This fact plays a significant role in the color and size of the moon.
When the moon appears large on the horizon, it means that it's nearer to the surface of the earth. This is when the moon gets a golden or yellow hue.
When it’s nearer to the surface of the earth, the moon will travel through extra atmospheric particles, like pollution and dust. These particles cause the moon to leave longer wavelengths behind. Longer wavelengths result in a yellow and golden moon.
As we saw earlier, the moon gets is natural light from the sun. This means the position of the sun can have a significant effect on the color of the moon.
Whenever we have a total lunar eclipse—when the earth positions itself between the moon and the sun—the moon will appear to be red.
This is also known as a blood moon, and Rayleigh scattering causes the red coloration. This is the same reason why the sky appears red during sunset.
One of our favorite colors which inspired us as you will see when we get to the part about our moon jewelry below!
It’s called pink moon not because it is literally pink—but it follows the ancient Farmer’s Almanac.
The name “pink moon” originated from the pink flowers that blossom early in the spring season.
The moon gets its light from the sun. Then, the rocks and dust on the moon’s surface reflect the light coming from the sun.
These minerals absorb certain amounts of radiations and then reflects others.
Generally, the radiations that the moon reflects will yield a silver-grey color, which appears white at some days. During the night, when the skies are dark, and the moon is bright, the contrast between these two will make the moon appear silver or silver-white.
This is the most common version of the moon as we know it.
