The ancient practice of alchemy used three symbols for the Sun, and the same symbols were also used to stand for Gold. The design of this necklace is based on two of them.

The simpler of the two was basically a circle with a point at its center, while the slightly more complicated version included a circle with short curves emanating from its perimeter. In this necklace, the basic elements of the two symbols are still present but have been modified.

First, the center point has become a void. Then, the curved arms have become wavy spikes radiating from the center, like the rays you see in old-fashioned depictions of the sun. And now the rays stay within the circle.

There is a nice balance between solids and voids in this pendant, with the triangular voids providing an interesting contrast with the circular shapes. Also the pendant, including its polished finish, stays consistent with the idea of a symbol: Two-dimensional, simple, and direct.
