Sabyasachi, "Very soon jewellery will be sold like art. The only difference is that along with perceived value, there is intrinsic value in jewellery as well."

Gigi Hadid, "My mom taught me the importance of investing in jewellery that is timeless, that you can wear forever."

In collaboration with Assouline, the organization is proud to have been able to further share its passion, by bringing an incredible compilation of timeless pieces to life within this beautiful tome.

"The discovery of each new world provides a unique glimpse into the physics that play a role in planet formation," said lead author Jon Zink, a UCLA postdoctoral scholar.

An international team of astronomers has identified 366 new exoplanets, using data from the NASA Kepler Space Telescope's K2 mission. The findings, described in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal, showed a planetary system that comprises a star and at least two gas giant planets, each roughly the size of Saturn and located unusually close to one another.

The discovery is significant because it's rare to find gas giants -- like Saturn in the solar system -- as close to their host star as they were in this case. The researchers cannot yet explain why it occurred there, but it makes the finding especially useful because it could help scientists form a more accurate understanding of the parameters for how planets and planetary systems develop.
