The Golden Records are two phonographic records that were included aboard both Voyager spacecrafts launched in 1977. The records, considered to be a time capsule, contain sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth. They are intended for any intelligent extraterrestrial life form, or for future humans, who may find them. The contents of the record were selected for NASA by a committee chaired by Carl Sagan. After about a year, the committee assembled 115 images, a variety of natural sounds, greetings in 55 ancient and modern languages, and music from different cultures and eras. The records also included human sounds, such as footsteps and Carl Sagan's laughter. This vintage inspired necklace features a disc pendant depicting the engravings on the Golden Records.

I have coveted this necklace for the past year. I am so glad I finally bought it. It is the perfect weight (I don't like wearing jewelry I can't feel) and the pendant is beautiful, clean and sharp. I look forward to many more stellar pieces in the future.
I had by eyeing this necklace for a while and decided to buy It in memoriam of a close relative that loved taking about the voyager satellites and the golden record. It’s the perfect size and goes well with everything! I will treasure it dearly.
I'm really happy with this purchase, the necklace looks just as pictured. I was a little worried that the pendant would be a bit smaller than I wanted, but in person, I think it's just right--the engraving is bold enough to be easily visible, so if anything, the size lends it a nice balancing element of subtlety while the design is still easy to make out.
I’ve been eyeing this necklace for ages, I absolutely love it! Thanks for the gorgeous piece!
Love the idea of making the golden record a necklace. It's beautiful as well. Thanks!
