These hoop earrings are the latest additions to the Dark Skies Jewellery Collection. The image used is one of the first from the new James Webb telescope released from NASA recently. The gems are set into a 16mm silver plated base and surrounded by silver anodised aluminium rings. The ear wires are sterling silver and they are presented in a black gift box with a photographic card with information about the Carina Nebula on the reverse. They are blank on the inside for you to write your own message or greetings. The price includes 1st class Royal Mail delivery and you will not be charged extra at the checkout (UK only - outside the UK there is a small additional cost).
Carina Nebula Hoop Earrings
The Carina Nebula
This landscape of “mountains” and “valleys” speckled with glittering stars is actually the edge of a nearby, young, star-forming region called NGC 3324 in the Carina Nebula. Captured in infrared light by NASA’s new James Webb Space Telescope, this image reveals for the first time previously invisible areas of star birth. Looking at this region in the southern constellation Carina, as well as others like it, Webb can see newly forming stars and study the gas and dust that made them. The Carina Nebula is located in the southern portion of our Milky Way galaxy, 10,000 light years from Earth. This massive cloud of gas and dust stretches across 200 light years of space and although it is dominated by the massive star Eta Carinae, it is also home to the star's smaller siblings as well as a younger generation of stars. The James Webb Space Telescope was launched Dec. 25, 2021, on an Ariane 5 rocket from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana, South America. After completing a complex deployment sequence in space, Webb underwent months of commissioning where its mirrors were aligned, and its instruments were calibrated to its space environment and prepared for science.
This range of jewellery has been designed, using stunning images of deep space courtesy of NASA/ESA/CSA and STScl.
