Includes an informational card with a diagram of the planets and a listing of the gemstones used in the necklace.

approximately ~20 million miles / ~32 million kilometers of Space.

Planets and sun are enlarged for dramatic emphasis*.

This necklace includes the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth & our Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and the popular controversial dwarf planet Pluto, representing the Kuiper belt.

Planets with many moons are accented with opalescent glass beads.

This item was every bit as beautiful as I hoped. Only wish shipping was quicker, but one can't rush art, I suppose. It really is lovely.

FAQs

Imitation is flattery, they say! However, please beware of counterfeits! We have seen shops creating sad copies of our work, using cheap, low-quality materials. Some even try to copy the names of our pieces. We have also seen re-sellers, selling our items for very high prices, usually around the holiday season. We are not affiliated with these sellers or their products, and can't make any guarantees about them.
