Man in the Moon: Penny Preville’s lunar lovelies.

Today’s post is dedicated to something dreamy and soulful, some stunning pieces that feel like they’re straight out of a storybook. It’s Penny Preville’s Man in the Moon collection.

Aren’t they wonderful??

I adore the crescent of diamonds on the rose gold man in the moon pendant and the cascades of diamonds and gold stars on the earrings. I especially love how the stars are stylized and angular: it suggests motion and keeps things feeling magical and mysterious.

As you might surmise, these beauties are available in several different metals.

The carved man in the moon moonstone is a classic design element we’ve seen and loved before in lovely antique man in the moon jewels I’ve encountered occasionally – usually rings. I’ve shown you one from The Three Graces and also A Brandt and Son in Philly.

The antique pieces are very hard to find, so I’m glad to see a contemporary designer whose finding inspiration in these wonderful carved moonstone faces.

The antique carved man in the moon moonstones tend to be a little more serious in expression than the modern ones here, but they’re just as charming in their own way.
