Ada Lovelace published the first computer program in 1843. She was also the first person to describe a general-purpose computer. These earrings celebrate Lovelace's contributions to the field of computer science.

These earrings are based on punch cards made for the Analytical Engine, the mechanical computer that Lovelace’s program was designed to run on. Each earring in this set depicts one of the "Operation Cards" used to input instructions into the Analytical Engine. One tells the computer to multiply and the other to divide.

  • Size: .5" W x 1.5" H
  • Fish hook backs
  • Comes with a fold-out card with Lovelace's story
