Crescent horn necklace has a meaning instead of just a shape of the moon. A crescent shape is a symbol used to represent the lunar phase in the first quarter or a symbol representing the Moon itself. It is used as the astrological symbol for the Moon and the alchemical symbol for Silver. It was also the emblem of Diana-Artemis that represented virginity. In Roman Catholic Marian veneration it is associated with the Virgin Mary.
From its use as roof finial in Ottoman in the mosques, it has also become associated with Islam and the crescent was introduced as chaplain badge for Muslim chaplains in the US military in 1993.
The word crescent is derived etymologically from the present participle of the Latin verb crescere to grow which is technically denoting the waxing moon.
