The Crescent moon and star symbol are one of the first in human history. The first accounts I have found are from ancient Sumeria (4500 BC to 1900 BC).
The Moon and star were also found in ancient Greece, representing the moon goddesses Luna and Artemis. The crescent pointing upward to the star hanging above the Moon representing virginity and Female chastity
The Ottoman Empire used the crescent moon, and it dropped out of general usage until the 1830s, where it started to appear on a slant and was a common gift for a woman to receive on her Honeymoon. It was popular in jewelry through the Edwardian age (1901-1914)
The crescent moon and star nowadays symbolizes the spirituality of female empowerment of Luna and Artemis. Change is also part of this symbol, changing phases of the Moon and the rhythm of the tides. The star is representing a direction or guidance.
