Designer's Note: I've seen a lot of Birthstone jewelry, but nothing with the concept of a chronological Birthstone Timeline with each bead representing a unit of time. We always research our designs before releasing them, so we can bring you something new! I hope you love it :)

    Hooray! You've found the original proportional Solar System Jewelry featured by The Planetary Society, NASA, and NPR's Science Friday!

    As with any famous or successful design, please beware of low-quality fakes, counterfeits, and knock-offs.

    In 2010, NASA made a tutorial from our MiniVerse Necklace, and our kit won the Maker Faire Blue Ribbon! Since then, we've seen cheap knock-offs of the design, often copying our name "MiniVerse", without permission. We are not affiliated with these sellers, and cannot provide any guarantees or customer service for their products.

    Here's where you can find our original pieces:

    We test everything, and our jewelry should last a long time under normal fashion jewelry wear conditions.

    But, please note, our items are not "indestructible" :)

    We recommend removing your jewelry before bathing, swimming, sports, or any activity that will place unusual stress on your jewelry.

    These items are not designed to go in the washing machine, dryer, microwave, or dishwasher.

    These items are not designed to be load-bearing (please do not hang anything from them or tie them around something).

    Bulk Discounts & Wholesale

    Materials & Variations

    We use high-quality Natural Gemstones for all our Planets! Please expect variations in Gemstone texture and color. We do not use dyed gems. We prioritize quality and color rather than needing to find a specific gem.

    All other beads, such as the spacer beads, Sun, and some of the small rings, are high-quality colorfast glass, glass/stone composite, or mother-of-pearl.

    Occasional variations in stones, clasps & findings may occur, based on trends and availability.

    such as a birthday, holiday, anniversary, or special occasion,
    please let us know and we'll do our best to get it there on time.

    (Please note, we do not “expedite” orders - your order will still be processed in the order received.)

    We thank you in advance for your patience!
    We are a small, 2-person shop,
    and we make everything ourselves,
    so our process can be delayed
    by emergencies and unforeseen events,
    competition between in-person and online sales,
    or high volumes of orders due to good reviews and holidays.

    If for some reason your order is delayed,
    we will do our best to contact you as soon as we can.
