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.

We wanted to give our customers a way of personalizing their pendants, but many of the pieces in our store are textured on the backside, have an uneven surface, or a design on all sides, making it impossible to engrave them.

Our solution to this problem was to offer engravable charms that you can add onto any necklace. They are small, about 1/2" wide (12 mm) and come with free engraving on the front side (backside engraving is available for an additional charge).

We currently only have these in two shapes (a heart or circle), but will be adding more as time goes on. The charms are also engraved in-house and custom fit with findings to match your pendant.

You can choose engravable charm options right on the product page of any pendant. Below are a few photographs of charms we've made for customers in the past, along with their pendants.
