NOTE: This earring has a matching twin product. If you prefer a single earring, pick the one you like best. Otherwise, we recommend you buy one of each. You will understand why, if you read the description below. There is also a shorter version (3cm/1.2in).
Celebrating the recent observation of gravitational waves, predicted 100 years ago by Einstein, we created a pair of earrings with the shape of the data released by the LIGO twin observatories.
In order to be able to observe the gravitational waves passing through at the speed of light, the two observatories were placed far apart at Hanford (Washington state) and Livingston (Louisiana), in the US. Representing this, each of our two earrings is based on the data from one of the two observatories. One observatory at each end of the US, one earring at each side of the head.
This particular model is the Hanford one. Both models are based on the actual numerical data released by LIGO.
