The Pleiades, or "Seven Sisters" is not actually a constellation but rather the brightest open star cluster in the night sky, located within the constellation Taurus. The Greeks considered the Pleiades to be seven sisters who had been immortalized in the stars, and nearly every ancient culture has their own mythology surrounding this brilliant sky object.
The pendant is small-batch cast from pewter and has been hand hammered and weathered for an antique look. The seven sisters and surrounding stars 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 your choice of a steel snake chain and an adjustable black leather cord.

Delighted with my purchases. The adjustability of the Pleiades necklace is a real plus, and the chain on the dopamine necklace appears surprisingly high-quality, considering the low price.
I love this necklace! I have this and the Orion one. The quality is superb and the shipping was ultra fast!

My daughter in law was absolutely thrilled with her Tardigrade necklace and put it around her neck as soon as she opened her present. She loves everything that Tardigrades represent! Tardigrades are amazing triumphant fellows! Go Tardigrades go! And, daughter in law's too!
P.S. And, her Tardigrade necklace looks lovely on her too!
As a children’s author of STEM picture books these earrings make the perfect addition to my outfits when visiting classrooms. The jewelry created by Boutique Academia is stylish, unique, and best part hypoallergenic.
As a molecular biologist, accuracy is important to me and this necklace is accurate and beautiful. Only complaint is it’s a little short but I got an extender and that was solved. Overall great product.
