This garnet, silver and moonstone necklace is part of our Red Tent Jewelry collection. Named for Anita Diamant's inspiring novel The Red Tent, this collection was created with the intention of embracing, honoring and celebrating our moontime - our menstrual cycle.

Menarche is the first menstrual period of a young woman, and this necklace is designed as a symbolic gift for the first moontime. Made with genuine rose-cut garnets ~ the traditional stone for menstruation and feminine power ~ and sterling faceted spacers handmade in Bali. The pendant is handmade sterling silver with a small sized garnet and a larger moonstone. Moonstone is another stone traditionally associated with menstruation ~ a stone of protection and healing energy. The sterling silver toggle clasp features a spiral design and a sterling silver moon dangle. The necklace is just under 18 inches long.

A healthy, positive attitude toward menstruation is one of the best gifts we can give our daughters. Celebrating her menarche as an important event, is a great way to start her womanhood journey.

All of our jewelry is strung on professional grade jewelry wire finished with sterling silver crimps and findings. The necklace will arrive carefully packaged with a story card, in an organza bag suitable for gift-giving.

Become moonwise and pass it onto your daughters!
