Delight both the astrology and astronomy buffs in your life with this sterling silver solar system pendant, featuring every planet from Mercury to Uranus orbiting the Sun. The planets stand in relief from the sterling silver plate that is darkened & oxidized for added drama. Look closely and you'll see a tiny crescent moon beside planet Earth!
Every planet orbits the sun at a different speed, going slower and slower the farther they are from the sun. Each one is said to affect a different part of your personality. The "inner planets" - the sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars - move quickly through the zodiac, and as a result, they affect your day-to-day life, moods, and habits. The "outer planets" - Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Uranus - orbit slowly so they are said to shape entire generations.
