  • the story

Star Struck

According to Greek mythology, the true and lasting love of Perseus and Andromeda was so strong that it was written in the stars to be recounted by countless love-struck couples of future millennia. Sister and stargazers, Jill Redman and Erin Cressaty, commemorate the bonds of lovers with this mythic inspired pendant that twinkles with the Andromeda and Perseus constellations.

Inlaid with drops of mine-free (recycled) sterling silver inlaid on laser cut, sustainable ebony hardwood, this striking pendant subtly honors a devotion that—like the love of this legendary celestial couple—is deep, unconditional, and transcends the test of time. Handmade in Bend, Oregon.

Comments about LOVE WRITTEN IN THE STARS NECKLACE:

I bought this necklace to commemorate the deep and meaningful relationship I have with my girlfriend. The love story behind the necklace is one that means a lot to the both of us so the necklace was perfect! The only con was that the clasp broke on the first necklace and although Uncommon Goods offered to replace it for free I chose to simply order a second one because of the sentimental value the necklace held. Now she has one to wear and one to keep.

Comments about LOVE WRITTEN IN THE STARS NECKLACE:

My husband got me this necklace as a gift. I loved the first one I received and wore it frequently. One day I looked down and the pendant was missing from the setting. Just gone. I wasn't being particularly active or anything either. Uncommon Goods has some of the best retail customer service I've encountered and they sent me a new one right away. They even followed up. The one I received, however, has visible glue around the main piece. Maybe it will ensure this one stays in. It's not super noticable, I'm just dissapointed in the quality, especially considering the price. The design and concept, I love though.

    The whole story behind the meaning of the necklace was what caught my son's eye, and he wanted to purchase it for her birthday. She knew the Greek mythology story behind the constellations' necklace. It is simple, yet unique, and can be worn with most outfits.

    She liked it!

      Wife loves the wood and silver combination. the Ebony is very dark which makes the silver stars "pop".

        My girlfriend really likes this necklace I got her for Christmas. It appeals to my geek nature, and to our common love of unique things that you're not likely to see elsewhere.
        The design was originally called "The Star-Crossed Lovers" until I looked up the artist and pointed out to her that the phrase meant two unlucky lovers who were kept apart; not really a good thing and not a match to the mythology. I'm glad to see she's renamed it.
        I'm saying I'd recommend this to a friend because I like the item, but the truth is I wouldn't. I want my girlfriend to be unique.

        Jill Redman and Erin Lockwood's handmade Star-Crossed Lovers Necklace is a beautiful way to celebrate unconditional love. Would you gift it to someone special or wear it as a reminder of the love in your own life?

        I liked it after I read the description. You need a better photograph that shows the materials. In the pic, it doesn't look "striking."

        Like that it's made in US, but, unless someone is really into the constellations, it would take some research to understand the meaning.

        There are enough people out there who are into astrology and the signs of the Zodiac that I believe it would be a good sell.

        Cool item. Who cares if other people understand it as long as the wearer does?

        Love this piece, the theme behind it and that it is made here in one of my favorite places in the US-California!

        im all abt the aethsetics.. and the "drop" below the pendant is unappealing.
