This beautiful necklace represents the sun during a total solar eclipse, when the sun and new moon are perfectly aligned to block out direct light from the sun. The open circular space in the middle represents the moon covering the sun. The spectacular combination of these celestial bodies represents positive change, and pushing through challenges to achieve new goals. A great necklace to wear every day and makes a great gift. Sterling silver charm on 18" chain. Ethically made in Thailand. By purchasing this necklace you are supporting my family business as well as artisans in developing areas.
