The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is the most powerful space telescope ever created. Designed for infrared astronomy, it will be able to peer back to the very beginnings of the universe, to the first stars and galaxies. A Lagrange point is a place in space where the interacting gravity of two massive objects is able to keep a very small object in equilibrium. Lagrange points are great spots for satellites because it doesn't take many course corrections to keep the satellites in place with relationship to Earth.
The James Webb Space Telescope Necklace is really two designs in one: it shows the world-renowned mirror on one side and an engraving of the Lagrange points on the other.
The pendant is made from polished golden steel and comes on a sturdy 18 inch gold-plated chain. It measures 1 inch (~25.5mm) in diameter and is very durable. It will be a reminder of new horizons and space exploration for years to come.
