As you guys may know, we are very lucky gals to have a special space at the National Maritime Museum's Royal Observatory!
Well, you guys already know everything thing there is to know about us (right?), so it's time for a little history lessons about literally one of the most important places in our humble country.
No, literally, it is built on the point which we measure space and time from... Let me explain. The Royal Observatory was built in August 1675, commissioned by goodtime guy King Charles II earlier that year ( FUN FACT: he - or rather his wife Catherine of Braganza - introduced drinking tea to England, so there's that!). It was built on the exact point of the prime meridian. This means that it is from this point that GMT is measured, and it is used as a basis reference for mapping and navigating.
The meridian in marked in the observatory by a brass strip on the floor and a neon green laser shining into the sky (for aliens, right? For aliens.)
The king intended the Observatory to be a place to 'apply himself with the most exact care and diligence to the rectifying of the tables of the motions of the heavens, and the places of the fixed stars, so as to find out the so much desired longitude of places for the perfecting of the art of navigation'. And, amongst his partying and debauchery, some amazing kinds of sciencing have taken place!
The Observatory was repurposed into a rockin museum in the second half of the 20th Century, and the science was carried off else. We are so lucky to have such an incredible site of national history and global influence right here on our doorstep!
Drop down to the National Maritime Museum and Royal Observatory: Start your day with a stroll around the Insight Astronomer Photography of the Year Exhibition, climb aboard the famous Cutty Sark, and wind up with a peaceful visit to the beautiful Baltic Exchange gallery.
It's all getting a little chilly over here! We've gone from summer dresses and sunnies to woolies and boots as we begin our journey from Summer to Winter. At 2.21 this afternoon the Autumn Equinox arrived, meaning the sun is rested adjacent to the celestrial equator, marking the beginning of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere (and Spring in the Southern!). Got your slippers and hot chocolates ready?
During the year we have two equinoxes, which mark the beginning of Autumn and Spring. On these days, the sunlight hours are equal to the sundown hours (hello darkness, my old friend). We also have two Solstices. The Summer Solstice which marks the longest amount of sunlight (party!!!), and the Winter Solstice, which marks the least (pyjama party?). The word equinox comes from Latin and means 'equal night'. Solstice is from Latin too and means 'sun still'.
The Autumn Equinox marks the sun entering Libra, the sign of balance, and is supposed to be a time of rest, reflection, and preparation for the long cold winter. It's a time to treat yourself to hot cooked dinners, lots of cups of tea, whack out your journal and get your thoughts out there!
Other planets experience equinox too, thought at different paces depending on their orbit and axis. Uranus is tipped on its side which gives at a 42 year winter as it travels round the sun. Uranus' last equinox was in 1965 and the next one will not be until 2049. Oof!!
If you're into it (we're into it) then have a look at our Equinox necklace. It's a druzy quartz crystal half dipped in gold for day and night, and can be worn over ANY kind of jumper (so far as we know), AND it's 30% off today at £16.80.
Baby love, bridal love, local love and love for the SALE all in our weekly round up!
Have you checked out our glorious SALE section, amazing finds like these slight seconds of CAVERN agate Geode necklaces for just £12, rather than £22! What is not to love?! We've been packing lots up this week so don't miss out.
An early edition of #eejwellery tag ups, why not get stuck in sooner rather than later, and what fun ones we've got!
Glittery beaut @caleyohso wore our MOONWALK OUTTA HERE necklace to complete her tardis-themed geeky festival chic at a rainy day Bestival!
YAY! Startorialist #eejewellery tag up action - our favey Astronomy Professors @startorialist met up at Astro Fest and Summer wore our CELESTIAL REALM earrings, whoop whoop!
Photographer @robertamariasim socks it to us with our DAYBREAK sun and cloud midi-ring at Lake Como!
Well we just GOTTA round up the round up with just about the most exciting thing that happened this week, no probably this year, wait - quite possibly in the history of EE! Our head of logistics (fancy) Cathy only went and bloomin' had her baby! That's her on the left about to pop - you can't tell, it's a front facing, black top shot - But yes, less than two weeks after we had her leaving party (she'll be back don't worry) we now have a brand new Charlie in the ranks and he's super special. SQUEEEEEE!!! Congratulations Cathy and Mr Cathy and Charlie! SO exciting!!! Have an amazing weekend EE-ers!
Big time making, (short but sweet) office goodbyes, excellent PERFECT ALIGNMENT #eejewellery crew and chocolate solar systems with a different flavour for each planet. What is not to love about this week??
We had a blast at EE Head of Logistics Cathy's (temporary!) goodbye party as she's off to have a baby. An actual baby! Very exciting. 👶🎉
Ok we know having a baby is a lot of work and all that, but let's not let Cathy steal all the limelight, we've been pretty busy ourselves making mega orders for ModCloth! SO.MANY. ONE SMALL STEPs and I'M WALKIN' HEREs. That's virtually the same as creating a newborn person isn't it?
Plenty of PERFECT ALIGNMENT (and killer glasses) action going on with the #eejewellery tags up this week. Looking good lovelies.
For example @velvet_spectacles ! Architect, redhead, cheesecake destroyer and PERFECT ALIGNMENT fan, it's all good...
Mancunian in London, @laurenoninstagram is looking fly in an 90s neckline and PERFECT ALIGNMENT. Our thumbs are up.
Aussie living in the UK @lau_renbre's perfect pout is almost stealing the show from PERFECT ALIGNMENT. Almost ;)
@libethdominguez in Santa Monica breaks the PA vibes with an on point SKY AT NIGHT piccy instead. Which is on SALE!
This new gemstone guy EQUINOX is a hot seller and we totally see why, even if we do say so ourselves. Good news is, he's back in stock baby!
We're nearly at the weekend folks! And we've stumbled across some Solar System themed chocs designed by L'eclat, the chocolate boutique of the Righa Royal Hotel Japan, which you can order to the UK via White Rabbit Express. So, you know, there's also that. Gonna be a good one guys!
Unfortunately, no living person can be in Leicester’s National Space Centre at every moment of every day… But guess what? Our jewellery is! That's right, our starry eyed dreams have come true and the National Space Centre have joined London's Royal Observatory and National Maritime Museum (as last!) in playing host to some of our most fabulous space themed pieces. We couldn't be prouder.
Here our jewellery is, literally (well, pretty much literally) amongst the stars!
We are so excited for our tiny little astro-men (and ladies) to be amongst the real thing. Among loads of other amazing artifacts, the museum holds a 42 metre tall rocket tower, home to Thor Able and Blue Streak rockets, and your chance to be your very own astronaut in the Tranquility Base.
Visit the National Space Centre now to see comedian, scientist and buddy of Brian Cox in performance in the Sir Patrick Moore's Planetarium, take the littlun's down on the 9th for the Small Space Toddler Day, or visit their website to see a cornacopia of interesting events and features. And don't forget to stop by to see us!!
Hello September! And there's a definite new season, new beginnings, new pinterest board type of crispness to the air this week...
Did you see that we're a guest artist on the lovely Paper Panda Cuts?? We've designed several EXCLUSIVE Constellations necklaces which are only at PP, including bunnies, cats and this unicorn. Swoop on over!👌✨
We are still so super psyched at being stocked on ModCloth. Like, actual ModCloth guys! Love seeing these ModCloth images of our pieces, ya know, taken by ModCloth!!
Fly my pretties! These little sweeties flew on the website this week, IN HER STRIDE are depictions of Pegasus and his brother Chrysoar. The legend goes that they were birthed of drops of blood in the boundless sea, but our winged beauty emerged from a single drop of light in the night sky, bringing with her a confidence in the capabilities of herself and her new world.
Some highlights from your top notch #eejwellery tags up. THUMBS UP!
There is a lot to love about this photo of @9seren9 I mean, model pirate ship, old school Alien tee and our TO INFINITY! necklace to name but a few.

Today we are in the throws of an exciting office move! We're a growing team and we need more space yo! Bear with us while we get all our Swiss Cheese Plants, motivational artwork and epic rugs in a row. Oh and also our designs, materials and computers and your orders obvs. Stay tuned as the new office vibes progress.
Our latest girl crush is French fancy Juliette Kistch, she's got that classic, relaxed but refined je ne sais quoi. Sweet and chic but with a certain edge and quirk that piques the interest. ALL THE FRENCH WORDS!
She's 24, lives in the capital of Brittany, Rennes, in the North and we also like the fact that she names some of her top interests as Disney and eating. Who can argue?
We also LOVED the fact that she tagged us in this Market Day post in her graphic print play suit, a rather epic basket by Maison de Parfum and our I'LL HAVE A BEE PLEASE, BOB honeycomb necklace. We adore the fact that this necklace is so often styled with a bouquet of flowers by it's wearers. We like a look to tell a story, especially when it attends to the needs of our jewellery - En point guys!
We're a current guest artist with the mighty Paper Panda! Inspired by their beautiful and intricate paper cuts, we've designed an exclusive range of origami animals based on our Constellations collection. There are bunnies, kitties and unicorns! Yep. All the cuties! They're only available at Paper Panda so snap them up now, they won't be around for long.
