Moons of Saturn Necklace with Proportional Distances
Agate, Shell, Moonstone, and Glass Necklace

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

1 bead = ~20,000 kilometers (~12,400 miles).

Space divas, get ready for hydrogen-helium tantrums under an aura of luminous rings!
Saturn and its nearest Moons shine and sparkle in a wearable homage to this dynamic and lovely planet.

Pan, Atlas, Prometheus, Pandora, Epimetheus & Janus, Mimas, Methone, Pallene, Tethys with Calypso & Telesto, Dione with Helene & Polydeuces, Rhea, and Titan are placed on the necklace according to their proportional distance from Saturn: each "space" bead represents approximately 20,000 kilometers (~12,400 miles).*

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

Saturn's striated liquid-gas atmosphere is represented as swirly striped Agate, and its radiant Rings are golden-hued Shell. Saturn's surrounding Moons are shiny glass, and ethereal pink and lavendar Moonstone, with a larger orange-yellow Agate bead for Titan.
