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.
I love all of the Penny Preville man in the moon pieces, but the one I imagine myself wearing is the pendant. It’s just so peaceful and comforting, somehow.
Here are some ultraglam Penny Preville stars to go along with the man in the moon pieces! Men in the moons? Man in the moons? This post is an unending grammatical conundrum.
Also: I can’t tell you how hard I tried to make the subject of those post fully alliterative. I failed, though. “Pretty Penny Preville pMoons”? “Penny Preville’s Precious pMoon Pretties?” I can’t make it work.
Please let me know if any of you can crack the alliteration puzzle! If you can, I’ll use your alternate title in my Instagam post caption later today.
