fabergé ovrery   (+8)  [vote for, against]
a gift for the astronomer with everything

a highly collectible item in the manner of Peter Carl Fabergé

each little planet and moon imitates the real thing in that they are richly encrusted with gems of an appropriate colour. e.g. mars is absolutely rippling with prized rubies and the earth is heavily endowed with emeralds and sapphires.

of course, jupiter, uranus and neptune have gyroscopically balanced gold and silver rings surrounding them spinning endlessly.

our very own moon is a perfectly chiselled white diamond and the sun is a brilliant light source which would best illuminate the facets and flares of the whole solar system.

Chiselling diamond is tricky...

I thought this was going to be something to do with ovaries.

The sort of Christmas gift a Tsar would give an Emperor. [+]

(Takes balls -- errm, gonads -- to make an orrery pun around here.)

As if an Orrery isn't expensive enough.

Yet another fiscally unobtainable object to desire.

Anyhow, it'd cost the Earth. //You want the Moon on a stick, don't you?

Sorry, Overy (ovrery) or Orrery?

ovrery - substitute r for v not R for V.

Sounds beautiful.

Oh, I get it!

Overy as in ovum (egg) + orrey.

Herp derp, nice pun.

This sounds ludicrously expensive, but DO WANT.
