Moons of Jupiter Bracelet with Proportional Distances
Jasper, Moonstone, and Glass Bracelet

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

1 bead = ~100,000 kilometers (~62,000 miles).

Get ready for some hot, stormy weather - we're off to Jupiter!
Jupiter and its nearest Moons shine and sparkle in a wearable homage to this wild and turbulent planet.

Metia, Adrastea, Amalthea, Thebe, Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto are placed on the bracelet according to their proportional distance from Jupiter: each "space" bead represents approximately 100,000 kilometers (~62,000 miles).*

Jupiter's stormy beauty is depicted in intricate Jasper Stone in brown, red, and golden hues, surrounded by Moons of shiny glass, and ethereal Moonstone in pink, white, and lavender.

Jupiter = Jasper
Metia, Adrastea, Amalthea, Thebe = opalescent glass
Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto = Moonstone (white, lavender, and pink)
Space = black glass

*Not for use in actual Space Navigation
