Star Light, Star Bright

Before we go any farther, we're going to go ahead and admit that the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper aren't constellations. We're calling them that because that's what everyone knows them as. But technically, they're "asterisms," a collection of stars that form a pattern. Now, Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, of which the stars in the dippers are respectively a part, are card-carrying (International Astronomical Union-approved) constellations proper.

Now that we have that technicality out of the way, check out these out-of-this-world earrings. Earrings? They may not look like earrings, but they are! This style of earring is variously referred to as a climbing earring or a pin-style earring. You wear it by inserting the undecorated back pin of the earring through your pierced hole and then rotating the piece up so that the decoration traces along your antihelical fold (that indentation along the outer edge of your ear). Mmm. Antihelical fold. This product is just full of learning new things.

Whether you call their various parts the Dippers, the Plough, the Saptarishi, the Hesperides, or just Valacirca, you can make it so that these stars shine from even closer than their scant 80 light years away. These tiny white topaz can deliver the sparkle of Polaris, Dubhe, and Phecda right to you.

For our customers with nickel allergies: these earrings are made from sterling silver, which can have nickel in it.
