This delicate ring is inspired by the scientific model organism, Caenorhabiditis elegans. C. elegans is a non-parasitic nematode worm that is used extensively by biologists as a model organism. Not only was this the first multicellular organism to have its entire genome sequenced, but its "connectome," the map of all of its neural connections, has also been deciphered. This worm has been the subject of many neurobiological studies, including a project in the zero gravity environment of the International Space Station to gain insight into the genetic basis of muscle atrophy.

The ring is 3D printed in polished solid sterling silver and is ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions.

The best way to measure your ring size is to either visit a jeweler or use a ring sizer.
