Space Jewelry Exhibition is Out of this World
Man has always been fascinated by the stars and space. “Wish Upon a Star.” “Reach for the Stars.” “Space: The Final Frontier.” What child hasn’t stared into the night sky and dreamed of going there? Who hasn’t felt a little tug in the heart and made a wish on a falling star? June even has a birthstone, the moonstone, that is named for Earth‘s celestial satellite.
On July 20, 1969, man landed on the moon for the first time, an event that has been celebrated and immortalized in hundreds of ways. Van Cleef and Arpels marked the occasion with this stunning pendant. It and dozens of other space-inspired jewelry pieces are showcased in an exhibit at the Forbes Gallery in Greenwich Village in New York. You can view a necklace that chronicles the phases of the moon, a rocket ship brooch made of platinum and diamonds, and a beautiful meteorite ring that actually spent some time on the International Space Station, among many other intriguing pieces.
Space is endless. Our fascination with it is endless. The art it inspires is endless. What dreams have the stars inspired in you?
