All About the Celestial Jewelry Trend
Lately, I have found myself drawn more and more to cosmic and celestial inspired jewelry. Perhaps this is the case because of my magpie tendencies — sparkly things are just so fun! — or my casual interest in astrology and tarot. Regardless, my searches and suggested listings are featuring the stars and plants more and more lately. Curious to learn more about the celestial jewelry trend, I did some research.
A revived trend that has been around for years and years, celestial jewelry have been popping up more and more. These pieces are generally inspired by the sun, moon, and stars, sometimes including tarot and astrological signs. Perhaps an outcropping of attachment to zodiac signs, celestial jewelry tends to satisfy that interest in a more general way.
“We believe people take comfort in the idea of something so much bigger than themselves, especially during dark times like 2020,” Kim Carosella, co-founder of cosmic-inspired jewelry brand Sorellina, explained in an interview with The Zoe Report in December of last year. And this idea makes a lot of sense. Celestial jewelry tends to spark something in us, an interest in the other-worldly. Perhaps is why the trend returns time and time again.
