Personalised Gemstone Stranded Necklace
Necklace with three strands each representing the birth chart of a different person or event. In this way a necklace can link the birth charts of each member of a couple with the date of their wedding or other anniversary, or the arrival of their first child. Gemstone beads show the positions of the planets within zodiac signs. The longest strand of this necklace is approximately 50cms but can be lengthened slightly further by up to 5cms with the extension chain. This makes it a very personal and wearable gift. Printed information is included. More information is available by clicking the Details tab lower down the page.

For each one of us the date and place of our birth is different. A birth chart reflects this and our individuality. It’s simply a map of the zodiac at your moment of birth.
In this multi-strand necklace each strand depicts a different chart. Since these charts are then joined together in one necklace they are usually chosen to represent loved ones or celebrate a special occasion.
This necklace is created in the floating style giving it a light appearance.
This necklace is available with 3 strands.
Some suggestions for what the strands may represent:
One strand for each member of a couple and the third strand representing the date of their wedding
One strand representing a mother and a strand each for two of her children
One strand for each member of a couple and the third strand representing their child.
After the birth or event charts are drawn up, the strands are created one by one. The chart itself is represented by the silver coloured bead wire and the various beads representing sign cusps and planets are secured in position with crimps.
The zodiac sign cusps are marked with 4mm pale blue Swarovski crystal bicone beads fixed at regular intervals. A labelled image of a section of a multi-strand gemstone bead necklace is shown.
Most planet beads are 6mm but in 3-strand necklaces if there is one strand which is more important or different from the others (such as the date of the wedding in a 3-strand necklace, or that of the mother in a necklace with her two children) then that strand has 8mm planet beads. The difference in size is not huge and can be seen in one of the images.
Only 8 planets – those known as the “personal planets” – are shown in this necklace. This is because the remaining three outer planets move very slowly and would most probably all sit in much the same position on all strands making it appear cluttered. Since these planets are regarded astrologically as representative of an entire generation they have been omitted in this very personal necklace.
The 8 included planets are Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Chiron. The different gemstone bead representing each planet was chosen because it had certain qualities attributed to it which were similar to those associated in astrology with that planet. (There are details of these on the OoakGifts.com website)
The length of the necklace (shortest strand) is approximately 50cm but this can be extended by up to 5cms with the extension chain at the clasp.
Other information that comes with it
Each necklace comes in a presentation box along with a copy of the combined chart and information sheets so the recipient is able to identify the various parts of the necklace. There are currently two background options for the printed chart – blue skies or cherry blossom – very appropriate for necklaces featuring a wedding. (options shown in images)
PLEASE NOTE: The positioning of the planet beads within the necklace is determined by their positions in the sky on the actual day of birth or event as depicted in the astrological chart. In some charts these may tend to cluster whilst in others they may be quite scattered. The clasp is sited so as to allow the majority of the planet beads to be at the front part when worn.
When I first designed this necklace I called it the “Loved Ones” necklace. I have since changed the name to something which is more recognisable although it still bears its original name on my website where there is more information about it than I have space to include here.
See Ooak Gifts shop for other birth chart necklaces.
In order to cast the astrological chart showing the day or moment of birth of the people represented by a strand of the necklace I need to know their date of birth and the place (nearest town). If a time of birth is available this can provide more accurate placement of the bead representing the Moon but this is not essential if not known.
