I love this classy and understated solar system necklace. The chain and mineral bead planets are both high quality. Normally gold plated jewelry starts to tarnish on me after a few wears, but this one is still going strong after much longer than that. I like that it isn't necessarily obvious it's a solar system necklace unless you look closer. It's beautiful!
