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.

When grandma’s jewelry box and dreams of space exploration collide, super sweet embroidered galaxy jewelry is born. Etsy crafter Baobap Handmade hand stitches each planet and shooting star onto these mini black canvases.

The earrings are about 16 mm in diameter while the pendant is 34 mm in diameter and comes with your choice of a gold and black or a simple gold chain. Either order takes 3-4 weeks to complete, as I imagine charting out space onto mini jewelry is a very precise and lengthy undertaking.

This gorgeous brass snitch necklace from Etsy seller Zelas combines two things I love: steampunk fashion and all things Harry Potter. The detailing on the snitch and wings is wonderful and hidden underneath is a real working watch. The chain is extra long so it will dangle around mid chest, or you can order it with a belt clip. Either way, this is a unique keepsake for wizards and muggles alike.
