Zodiac Constellation Necklace

3 items left

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!

Perfect for:

  • Astronomers, stargazers, and astronauts
  • Science fiction fans and zodiac aficionados
  • Dreamers, poets, writers, and artists
  • Anyone with a birthday


Don't know which constellation to order?

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.
