Offered by the Brooklyn-based company 'UncommonGoods,' the Shattered Glass Ceiling Necklace seeks to symbolize the accomplishments of women in public and private spheres.

The concept of the "glass ceiling" is one that symbolizes the invisible barrier that women and minorities face, particularly in reference to their roles in the workplace. Whether it is the fact that accomplished women are more likely to be skipped for a promotion in the workplace than men are, or the fact that women (particularly women of color) make less money for the same work that their male counterparts do, the glass ceiling is an intangible but undeniably real fact of corporate life around the world.

The Glass Ceiling necklace seeks to symbolize all the women who have shattered this glass ceiling in the past, and all those who will continue to do so in the future.
