Pluto Pendant Necklace ($13.45)

Feeling jaded about Jupiter and saying "meh" to Mars? Spruce up your planetary bling with this colorful Pluto necklace from MGArtisanPendants. The image comes courtesy of NASA's New Horizons spacecraft, which beamed back the first close-ups of the small, icy world and its family of moons in July. The pendant comes in a zinc alloy casing and hangs from a 24-inch bronze chain. If you want a whole solar system of style, the shop also offers pendants featuring other planets, nebulae and galaxies.
