The night sky is filled with wonder, beauty, and history. Originating in Babylonian astronomy in the 7th century BC, the zodiac was used mark the progression of months in the calendar for millennia. During the Hellenistic and Roman eras, the Babylonian star catalogs were adopted into Greek astronomy, and the signs began to acquire special meanings. These constellation pendants take a new, astronomically accurate approach to the zodiac... like birthstones of the sky. Each engraved black onyx disc displays the constellation and background stars precisely, to as low a magnitude as could be engraved. The bail is antique silver-pewter, and each 1-inch diameter pendant is hung from an 18-inch snake chain. Whether as a birthday gift or something special for yourself, these necklaces are unique and unforgettable!
There are a variety of zodiac systems. Generally speaking, the Ptolematic (Tropical) zodiac is the most widely recognized. The Hindu sidreal zodiac takes into account precession of equinoxes. In 1930, the International Astronomical Union weighed in on the issue as well.
Got this for my daughter for Christmas. She recognized the constellation right away and loves the necklace!
Happy after purchasing several of these necklaces, different constellations. They are attractive and personal. It seems most people were born during one of twelve months of the year :-).
Great quality! Every person who has received these gifts has loved them.
Love! Love! Love!
Thanks for shipping this so quickly. I have already received list of compliments on the necklace

a gift for me
My college aged daughter is interested in astronomy.
I purchased a pendant necklace recently. I am absolutely charmed with it - the quality is top-notch and it looks beautiful. The necklace was delivered in a very timely fashion (especially given today's problems), in a sweet box that I will re-use at some point. I couldn't be happier with the value of my purchase.
