The Saccharomyces cerevisiae (budding yeast) earrings are inspired by an organism indispensable for baking bread, brewing beer and making wine. Yeast is also an important model organism for scientists. In addition to being easy to grow, Saccharomyces is also easy to genetically transform and is used for the production of recombinant proteins. These proteins include biopharmaceuticals necessary for the treatment of diabetes, hepatitis and anemia as well as proteins studied in many other scientific disciplines besides medicine.
This elegant earring model measures 1.7 cm (0.67 in) below the earring loop and each earring weighs 4.5 g.
The earrings are available in 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.
