The brooch could be converted into a pendant if required.

 

The crescent moon is one of the oldest symbols known to mankind. It became very popular as a motif in jewellery in the Georgian and Victorian eras, particularily in brooches. Crescent moons celebrate the feminine moon goddess and as such are associated with female empowerment. It also symbolizes change, as it turns into a full moon and then back, similar to the ebb and flow of life.
