RockLove bring Star Trek character jewellery to life

Star Trek jewellery makers RockLove have launched a new range of costume reproduction jewellery, bringing to life the on-screen jewellery worn by Uhura in TOS, Guinan in TNG, and Kira in DS9. Continue below to check them out.

From TOS, we have these delightful gold spiral earrings worn by Uhura. Here's how RockLove describe them:

Honoring Star Trek’s iconic Communications Officer, Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, these spiral earrings are handcrafted in sterling silver and plated in luminous yellow gold.  In the same technique as the originals, each spiral is wound by hand and will vary slightly.  The coils hang from secure lever-back ear wires, just like those worn on-screen by actress Nichelle Nichols in Star Trek: The Original Series.



Here they are in action:


And in the real world today:





From DS9, we have the iconic Bajoran earring, specifically Kira Nerys'. RockLove's version is in silver:
Known as d'ja pagh, the Bajoran earring is an elaborate earpiece traditionally worn on the right ear by the Bajoran people. Each person’s earring was unique and bore symbols of their family - historically indicating their social cast, marital status, and religious piety.

Accurate to the earring worn on-screen by actress Nana Visitor who played Kira Nerys on Star Trek: Deep Space 9, the Bajoran earring is a symbol of one’s faith - to family, to culture, to freedom. Featuring a single hole piercing, the stud connects with a chain to an accompanying cuff that gently attaches higher up the ear lobe.








Finally, from TNG, we have earrings worn by Guinan in the episode Suspicions
Bright, colorful, and full of surprises, these earrings are the perfect complement to the one-of-a-kind bartender who served wisdom and drinks in Ten Forward.

Handcrafted brass plated in silver and yellow gold, these dangling earrings feature a domed stud and hammered disk with chime-like strands featuring nuggets of genuine turquoise that shift and sway.

An homage to the earrings worn on-screen for Guinan’s final appearance, played by actress Whoopi Goldberg, in the Star Trek: The Next Generation: Season 6, Episode 22 “Suspicions.” This playful and unique design reflects the offbeat, timeless advice embodied by Guinan’s sage and enigmatic character.








The range is available to order now, and mostly expected to ship this month, apart from the Bajoran earring which is due in June.
