DNA/RNA (G-C Base Pair) Earrings


Genes are written in DNA and RNA molecules using a code of chemical units called bases. These bases form pairs, which is critical to their function. In DNA, A (adenine) pairs with T (thymine) and G (guanine) pairs with C (cytosine). In RNA, G pairs with C and A pairs with U (uracil).

The charms are based on shapes of the base molecules. They are hooked onto an ear wire at the place where they would normally connect to the sugar-phosphate backbone.

The charms are about 3/4 inches long, are made with high-quality sterling silver, and are connected to sterling silver French wires.

The earrings come in a gift box and include an informational card about the molecules.
