Gravitational waves necklace

Gravitational waves necklace


Gravitational waves laser cut necklace.

Gravitational waves are ripples which form in the fabric of spacetime when two astronomical objects merge. They were first postulated in 1905, but they weren't directly measured until 2015 by the two LIGO detectors. This necklace shows the resulting measurement; the two engraved lines show the signal received by each of the two detectors, whilst the cut out shows the predicted result - see how well they match!

Specifically, this necklace shows the GW150914 event, from the merging of two black holes.

This necklace comes in a Cepheid Studio branded gift box as standard (see last listing pictures).

All my items are beautifully finished and are hand-made by me in my Paris studio.

Cherry wood & silver plated chain.
Please note that the grain of the wood varies between pieces and sometime features knots etc, so your piece of jewellery will be one of a kind.

Care tips:
This necklace is made from wood, so make sure it stays dry. No accidental trips in the washing machine, please!
The chain is silver plated, so to keep it in tip-top condition you should keep it away from soaps, makeup, perfumes, and other chemicals.
