Moons of Neptune Necklace with Proportional Distances
Amazonite, Moonstone, Agate, and Glass Necklace

Hooray! Our Solar System Jewelry series has been featured by BuzzFeed, The Planetary Society, MAKE: NASA, and NPR's Science Friday!

1 bead = ~10,000 kilometers (~6,200 miles).

Grab your kite-snowboards, hang gliders, and arctic-grade parkas!
Neptune and its nearest Moons shine and sparkle in a wearable homage to this icy-cool wind-blown planet.

Naiad, Thalassa, Despina, Galatea, Larissa, Proteus, and Triton
are placed on the necklace according to their proportional distance from Neptune: each "space" bead represents approximately 10,000 kilometers (~6,200 miles).*

Neptune's chilly beauty is depicted in stormy blue-green Amazonite,
surrounded by Moons of shiny glass, swirly agate, and ethereal pink and lavendar Moonstone.

Neptune = Amazonite
Naiad, Thalassa = Opalescent Glass
Despina, Galatea, Larissa, Proteus = Moonstone (white, lavendar, and pink)
Triton = Crazy Lace Agate
Space = black glass

*Not for use in actual Space Travel

Length:18 inches / 46 centimeters
Lobster-Claw Clasp

Designer: Laura Cesari for Chain of Being - Fall 2010
Based on a pattern from Nature

Frequently asked questions about chainofbeing

Imitation is flattery, they say! However, please beware of counterfeits and re-sellers. We have seen shops creating copies of our work, using cheap, low-quality materials. We have also seen re-sellers, selling our items for very high prices, usually around the holiday season.

We are not affiliated with any other jewelry shops, and, although we generally like to help people, we cannot guarantee quality or provide customer service for items bought from other sellers.

The only places to get the real thing are:
- Our Etsy shop: chainofbeing.etsy.com
- Our Amazon shop: www.amazon.com/shops/chainofbeing
- Our Website: chainofbeing.us
We take requests!
Please ask about custom designs, custom lengths, or custom clasps.

We can make any size bracelet, to fit anyone!
Send a conversation through Etsy or at checkout,
if you need a specialized length or clasp for any item.

Most necklaces can be made as a bracelet or anklet, and vice versa,
and most items can be made with a lobster-claw or toggle clasp.

Please note that custom orders may take up to an additional 1-2 weeks.

Please note, if you order a regular item and then ask for a customization,
your item will be considered a custom item and will take up to an additional 2 weeks to complete.
We use durable, high-quality Jeweler's-grade beads and wire.

We test everything, and our jewelry should last a long time under normal fashion jewelry wear conditions.

(Please note, we do not “expedite” orders - your order will still be processed in the order received.)

We thank you in advance for your patience!
We are a small, 2-person shop,
