"Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can. Because the cosmos is also within us. We're made of star-stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself."
Here may be the only piece of jewelry in the world that attempts to capture our universe in such exquisite detail. In this magnificent pendant, we use an artist's logarithmic scale conception of the local region of the universe, with the Solar System at the center, inner and outer planets, Kuiper belt, Oort cloud, Alpha Centauri, Perseus Arm, Milky Way galaxy, Andromeda galaxy, and nearby galaxies.
Our miniature universe is microprinted on a translucent disc within a steel and glass locket. When worn, it looks like a stylized black pendant with a dark interior, matching everything. But when you hold it up to the light, incredible detail bursts into appearance. The graphic was created by Pablo Carlos Budassi, Mendoza, Argentina (G+, Facebook) and recently went viral online. The pendant comes with a heavyweight gunmetal chain, available in a short length (18 inches) or long length (32 inches).
