This Solar Spectrum Necklace Turns Sunlight Into Style


The Solar Spectrum Necklace is jewelry that combines science with fashion—and it’s all for a good cause.

As a symbol of sunlight, we have microprinted the solar spectrum on a translucent disc within a steel and glass locket. When worn, it looks like a silver pendant with a dark interior, matching everything. But when you hold it up to the light, you see a magnificently detailed rainbow with tiny black lines representing the chemical makeup of our sun. The spectrum image used here was created by N.A.Sharp at the Fourier Transform Spectrometer at the McMath-Pierce Solar Facility at the National Solar Observatory on Kitt Peak. Credit and thanks to: NOAO/NSO/Kitt Peak FTS/AURA/NSF. The pendant comes with a steel rounded box link chain or as a keychain. The chain is available in a short length (18 inches) or long length (26 inches).

Plus, 50% of net proceeds from the necklace will be donated to The Trevor Project—a nonprofit working in crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBT+ youth.
