Dog lovers, this one is for you! This delightful constellation follows Orion through the night sky as one of his faithful hounds. At the head of our animal friend is Sirius, the dog star and the brightest star in the sky. The heliacal rising of Sirius marked the flooding of the Nile in Ancient Egypt, and the Polynesians used this brilliant star for sea navigation. Whether as a symbol of the joy of stargazing or in remembrance of a favorite furry companion, this constellation is a very good dog.
The pendant is small-batch cast from pewter and has been hand hammered and weathered for an antique look. The stars are accurately placed, based on star maps, and are cut all the way through the pendant. The back features the right ascension and declination, reversed to match the stars. As far as we know, this is the only constellation pendant in the world designed to this level of astronomical accuracy. The pendant measures 3cm in diameter and comes on an adjustable brown leather cord.
I bought 2 necklaces for my wife and one for my sister. My wife’s face lit up when she saw them. Perfectly captured what she stood for! “She who dares wins!”
Worth every penny
I have been wearing this necklace every day since it came in and I absolutely love it! The look is so unique and I love how accurate it is to represent the actual constellation.

Took a punt and bought this for myself. Was as advertised and arrived safely to Sydney, Australia. Very happy with this item and the detailing even on the reverse side.

My daughter, who is a biology teacher in the Denver Public Schools, was thrilled with the jewelry that represents the concepts in Biology. She especially like the necklace with the molecular representation of the coffee bean attached to a cup of coffee. I appreciated the assistance I received from your representative. All the best.
This was the perfect gift for my nerdy girlfriend who is going to school for microbiology. She has a huge interest in molecular structures and chemistry, so this naturally was one of those things that she would adore. It arrived in time for Christmas and was packaged neatly, she even kept the box for the cover art. Will definitely consider you guys for future gifts.
I have ordered a number of pieces in the last couple of years and Boutique Academia is one of my daughter’s favorite places to come for unique STEM inspired jewelry. Plus as an engineering major, she says the pieces tend to spark a few conversations whenever she wears them.
I recently purchased the Solar Spectrum Bar Necklace for my other daughter who is also an engineering major and she absolutely loved it. She’s loved everything rainbow since she was 5. And having just finished Physics II, she has a whole new appreciation for the Solar Spectrum. This was the perfect gift for my engineering student.
We bought necklaces for two of our grandchildren, and they love them. A perfect gift! Boutique Academia was a pleasure to work with, and the merchandise arrived on time, or even early. We are very pleased with our experience, and would recommend them to anyone looking for a unique gift, or for your own use.
