“Oh, Jerry, don’t let’s ask for the moon. We have the stars.” — Bette Davis, from the 1942 film classic “Now, Voyager”
These days, more and more Hollywood stars are reaching for the moon…the constellations, the sun, and the planets. Celestial-style jewelry and fashions have been sweeping the red carpet lately, inspiring the everyday streetwear and accessories we earthlings love.
According to the editors of Accessories Magazine, “Designers are having fun with celestial-inspired jewelry and small leather goods, all which feature the moon, stars and constellations.”
Here are four affordable pieces to add a heavenly touch to your winter wardrobe or holiday gift list. Happy shopping!
