These earrings are an ode to the mouse. The house mouse (Mus musculus) has been used as a model organism in science for over one hundred years. It is a small, easy to keep, rapidly reproducing mammal with 95% genetic similarity to humans and therefore has been used in countless studies of human disease. The genetic basis of many diseases is the same in both mice and humans.
The Mouse Earrings are 2.3 cm (1 inch) long. The tail of the mouse loops around the earring hook.
The earrings are available in solid sterling silver or 14K gold plated brass, finished with nickel-free sterling silver or gold plated silver hooks to match, and are ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions.
