During the Victorian Era, it became popular for gentlemen to give their new brides a little token in the form of a crescent moon. It was a way of celebrating what would be their new life together, and to bless their honeymoon after the wedding. Often, the crescents would be worn in the bridal veil during the ceremony, and then pinned to the lapel for the honeymoon.
