If you've witnessed a total solar eclipse, you know that seeing the sun's corona with your own eyes is a transcendent experience. If you haven't yet, then you're in for a treat!
A stellar corona is the outermost layer of a star. Made of plasma, it stretches millions of kilometers out from a star's chromosphere and is much hotter than the surface of the star. The word 'corona' is Latin for 'crown' and comes from the Ancient Greek word κορώνη (korṓnē) for 'garland, wreath'.
This necklace brings the imagery of a total solar eclipse into a subtle but stunning piece of jewelry. The negative space in the center captures the moment during an eclipse when it seems like the sun suddenly disappears, allowing the corona to blaze across the sky in unforgettable glory.
The 16k gold plated pendant comes on your choice of an 18-20 inch adjustable gold plated chain to match the pendant, or an 18 inch sterling silver chain to make the golden highlights on the sun pendant really pop. Either way, this is a design that works well in any occasion, from t-shirts to formal gowns.
