Orion the hunter is one of the most recognizable and prominent constellations in the night sky. Archaeologists have found depictions of Orion from over 30,000 years ago, and cultures all over the world recognize this star grouping in various forms. It's seasonal appearance and disappearance was in an ancient calendaring. The pendant is small-batch cast from pewter and has been hand hammered and weathered for an antique look. The stars and the Orion Nebula are accurately placed, based on star maps, and are cut all the way through the pendant, down to the smallest magnitude we could manage. The back features the right ascension and declination, reversed to match the stars. As far as we know, this is the only constellation pendant in the world designed to this level of astronomical accuracy. The pendant measures 3cm in diameter and comes on an adjustable brown leather cord, adjustable black leather cord, or steel snake chain.

I absolutely love this necklace! It is lightweight yet durable and the stars are clearly imprinted on the necklace! One of my favorite pieces yet!
my first constellation
The pendant has a nice weight to it, and it's the perfect size. Orion was the first constellation I was able to identify, and it remains my favorite. Very pleased to be able to have it near me even when it's no longer in the night sky.
I got it for my girlfriend for christmas and she loved it!
It’s a bit bigger than the photos made it look which was actually a nice surprise.
Great present - very classy!
Loved giving this necklace as a gift.

I meant to select the Black corded string. Can you make this change for me?
Bought this for my 13 year old niece for her 3.14 birthday. She loved it! Wears it everyday. She had to explain the significance to her friends, who upon learning it, thought it was the coolest gift. It is hard to impress teenage girls...so thanks for this awesome gift!
As the father of a STEM-minded daughter I discovered these folks Christmas before last. Now my wife is wearing a necklace from here as well as my daughter. I love that I can tell my own story to go with the gift(s).
My sister is a professor so I got her this necklace for her birthday. She was thrilled with it and is enjoying wearing it. I have never been disappointed in a purchase from this company. Wonderful customer service and creative and beautiful pieces. Thank you!
I love this piece! I bought it because I love the gorgeous, intricate design but in real life you can tell it's extremely well made, too. It's the perfect blend of nerdy and sophisticated, which I aspire to embody (at least sometimes). I love everything I've bought from Boutique Academia and this is definitely a new favorite.
...my step-daughter suffers with low self esteem, always a fight to just nudge her along, in almost everything, she graduated high school and this May college, with a degree in a field she will excel at, for the first time she is looking forward instead of her feet, I saw the bracelet, it was for her. Her battle her success, a little token of respect, to let her know, her mother and I noticed.
