space has always been in our consciousness & often expressed in jewelry. the ancients wore amulets depicting the moon; in georgian & victorian jewelry we see numerous depictions of the moon, stars, & halley's comet. the mid-20th century saw an explosion of "space age jewelry" which continues through today. 
forbes galleries presents out of this world! jewelry in the space age featuring jewelry that is inspired by space, has been to space, is made out of materials that came from space & materials created by NASA for space exploration.
