Maia Major with Rigel Major Necklace
Classic and bold in style, this larger overlapping double pendant in concrete, diamond dust and stainless steel hangs centred from a simple snake chain. See the phases of the moon depending on how the piece hangs.
Maia is a star in the constellation Taurus. It is the fourth brightest star in the Pleiades open star cluster. The name Maia originates with the Latin: Maia. She is one of the seven daughters of Atlas and Pleione in Greek mythology—stars which are also included in the Pleiades star cluster. Maia was the oldest of seven beautiful sisters known as the Pleiades. The star as seen from Earth is actually a triple or quadruple star system, with the primary star, Rigel A, a blue-white supergiant that is estimated to be up to 279,000 times as luminous as the Sun. A companion, Rigel B, is 500 times fainter than the supergiant Rigel A and visible only with a telescope. Rigel B also appears to have a very close visual companion Rigel C of almost identical appearance.
