Bacteriophage Earrings

Be the envy of the lab with these delightful T4 enterobacteria phages danging from your ears. And by danging, I mean they really look as if they are docked to your ears with their tail fibers, just as a real bacteriophage would dock to its bacterial host. Look closely and you'll see the vertex capsomeres, capsid proteins, whiskers, dsDNA, kneecap domain of long fibers, short tail fibers (spikes/pins), and more. Carefully crafted from pewter to be exceptionally detailed, these phages measure 2.7 cm high with hypoallergenic stainless steel hooks.

Perfect for:

  • Biologists, microbiologists, bacteriologists
  • Doctors, nurses, med students
  • Anyone with an appreciation for science and biology

The T4 phage earrings are very comfortable, not heavy at all. I don't notice them until their heads brush against my neck... or catch on a scarf or sweater. (The collar whiskers are blunt but snaggy, easily dealt with if you're mindful of it.) (Dear Reader, I was not initially mindful.) I'm very pleased with them, and may have to get the necklace as well. A very fun find.

Perfect for the biology student!

I can't say these are pretty lol, but they are what my daughter is studying and the nerd in her will love these!

As a Science/Pre-Med Fanatic Highly Recommend!!

I ordered several items, which I never thought I would ever find including a set of bacteriophage earrings! Shipped rapidly and beautifully in little boxes with ribbon perfect for gifting. I highly recommend the products-beautifully crafted and finished down to details especially heart and brain models on key chains. I will be back soon as a customer!

Unique Earrings

Had to wait to post a review since I bought these as a gift and didn't want receiver to see my purchase. Anyway, the Bacteriophage earrings; I thought they looked creepy, but recipient knew exactly what they were and loved them. She's a Med Tech with a degree in microbiology - - - all about science. I'm happy to have found Boutique Academia to shop for her and my other science-y sister!
