The hustle-and-bustle of city life continues even underground. As you swipe your card, you hear that familiar rumble and hurry down the stairs. The train pulls away just as you arrive at the platform and you know that Metron, the Greek god of mass transit, is not on your side today. The dulcet tones of a busker's shamisen might provide you with a moment of calmness... Or not.
Okay. Let's face it. The subway is not always charming, but this necklace is!
This intricate piece of wearable art depicts a train moving down a tunnel, which functions by "swiping" the metrocard at the top. At the end of the trip, the train door opens and abstract people exit and enter. The clasp is fully integrated into the design in the form of a line on the subway map that creates the frame of the necklace.
Fabricated in solid sterling silver, this piece is marked with a "925" purity stamp to confirm the authenticity of the metal. With proper care, this high-quality piece should last a lifetime and beyond.

The pieces in our collections are primarily made to order. This means we create each piece specifically for you when your order is placed. We intentionally keep limited stock because when we make our jewelry we want to know that its next home will be with you, being worn and loved, not sitting in a box still waiting for its moment to shine. This process typically takes 1-2 weeks, unless otherwise noted. Another benefit to creating our pieces this way is that it allows us to work with you to customize elements of a design if necessary. Don't see the size option you need? Just contact us with any questions you have about measurements or fit before you place your order. We want you to feel confident that you're receiving the perfect item.
