The moon has fascinated mankind since time immemorial. Suspended high in the night sky, its shifting form casting a silvery brilliance on the world below, it’s little wonder that it has often appeared as a leitmotif in the realms of fashion and jewellery.
The latest additions to Poh Heng’s exquisite ORO22 line are shining examples of how the moon continues to spark the imagination.
Aptly named the ORO22 Eclipse collection, the range takes its cue from the moon’s path as it circles around the earth. Entirely and exclusively designed by local Poh Heng designer, Celine Goh, “the pattern creates an alluring visual symphony that dances in the moonlight.”
Three distinctive shapes (the full moon, waning crescent and waxing crescent) are translated into circular discs that are crafted from Moonlight Glow, a special shade of 22K gold that’s exclusive to the homegrown jeweller. From statement necklaces to eye-catching earrings, the accessories epitomise the indomitable presence of the moon — just like the women they’re designed for.
Can’t decide which to add to your collection? Here’s where it gets interesting: Why not select a piece based on where the moon is on your natal chart?
For the uninitiated, a natal chart captures the relative positions of cosmic entities at the time of one’s birth, and is said to determine a person’s personality or life. The position of the moon in this chart, then, is said to uncover our instincts and show how we express ourselves. You can calculate your moon sign using apps like Co-Star, The Pattern, TimePassages.
Read on to find out which design from the ORO22 Eclipse collection best suits you, according to your moon sign.
