Mobius Necklace "To thine own self be true"

9 items left

"This above all: to thine own self be true." These words of advice, given by Polonius to his son Laertes in Shakespeare's Hamlet, are timeless in their wisdom. Commonly understood as a call for loyalty to your dreams and inner compass, it was also originally meant as a warning to take care of oneself first, so you can be of help to others. Like an oxygen mask in an airplane, you must fill your own lungs before you can give breath to another. This message of personal fidelity is engraved here on a stunning sterling silver mobius pendant. Available with an 18 inch sterling silver chain, a 32 inch gunmetal chain, or both.

Perfect for:

  • Teachers, professors
  • Doctors, nurses
  • Students, interns
  • Leaders of all kinds
  • Mothers... most especially mothers

Lovely gift

Bought as a gift for my wife after hers got lost and has been greatly missed. A lovely necklace, and great gift for any Shakespeare fan.

Extremely satisfied!

I bought two necklaces for my daughter’s birthday. They arrived promptly after ordering. I may have to order them for me too!

Perfect Gift

My friend opened the box, smiled wide, and immediately put the necklace on. I looked over at it later over lunch, and it was as if she has had that necklace for decades. She loved the quote, and the fact that, on a Mobius strip, it says it forever. Perfect gift! It even arrived earlier than planned!

I want one too

I loved the necklace I bought as a gift so much, I want one too.

Beautifully crafted.

I don't enjoy jewellery, and generally don't see the point of wearing it. I don't recall ever having bought jewellery for myself before, but I bought the Mobius Necklace for me when I purchased another item from Boutique Academia as a graduation gift for my daughter. I have worn the Mobius a lot, and I love having a symbol of something that is deeply important to me. It is also very beautiful. (By the way, I didn't think the items would arrive in time for graduation, but they were shipped the day after I placed the order, and arrived with time to spare--thank you.)
