Early Irish jewellery was hammered out of gold and shaped like a crescent Moon and known as a “Lunula”. These were popular in the Bronze Age, no doubt to show status and wealth.  Later in Ireland, the penannular brooch developed and was used as a cloak fastener in Medieval times.  They were often very ornate and consisted of a semi-circular body with a sliding pin for fastening robes. However, the essential shape of the crescent moon persisted.
