Solar System Necklace - Jumbo Size
Proportional Distances of the Solar System measured in Beads

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

You are Here!
This Solar System Necklace demonstrates each planet's distance from the Sun!

Distances between planet orbits are proportionally accurate,
with each black glass bead representing
approximately ~40 million miles / ~64 million kilometers of Space.

A wearable version of an astrometric chart,
with stone, glass, and shell beads representing the sun and planets,
this solar system necklace is a decorative cosmogram,
inspiring thoughts of the vastness of Space.

Planets and sun are enlarged for dramatic emphasis*.

A great conversation starter, and a reminder of where we are in the Universe!
This version of our Solar System Necklace features large black glass beads,
and works out well as a womens' or mens' necklace.

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.

*Not for use in actual Space Navigation
