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.

Canine Major necklace is lovely
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.

I not only enjoyed the uniqueness of the products, they had very good quality. I had problems with the delivery service but Boutique Academia took care of it and helped me. I personally liked the quality and aesthetics of the molecule shaped earings more than the necklaces.
Hello. I ordered 2 necklaces; a Tardigrade necklace and a molecular necklace. They came very quickly. I really, really like them! The Tardigrade necklace is quite the conversation piece. It is so unique. The molecular necklace, I got for my niece. She loves it. She shows it to everyone. Thanks so much and keep up the good work!
I purchased speed of light necklace and Fibonacci earring for my daughter, who is a university student majoring in physics, she loved it. The jewelry is good quality and very well made, and the items were nicely packed and showed up in my mailbox quickly. I am so glad I found this source for unique gifts for my STEM friends! I am a physicist myself, and I hope the selection of physics-related items will grow, so I have gifts for all my physics friends.
A friend sent me the tardigrade necklace as a gift, and I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with the quality and solid heaviness of the tardigrade pendant. I love it so much I decided to pay it forward, so ordered another one to send to another tardigrade-loving friend, and she loves hers!
An adorable little badass you can carry with you to find your own resilience when you need it most. Smaller and easier to wear than the vertical one, with satisfying little toes to play with as you gaze into the abyss.
They were a birthday present for my niece who is an architecture student. She knew what they were immediately and she loves them. It was really nice to find a place devoted to jewelry that represents the sciences and professions. Things that have special meaning to those who try to find order in the world.
I have purchased the black hole necklace and earrings, Fibonacci necklace and earrings, and two tardigrade necklaces (my 6 year-old son loves tardigrades, we each have one). They are all beautiful, well designed, and better quality than the price might suggest. The earrings are light weight and comfortable and the necklaces are thoughtfully designed. I will definitely be purchasing more jewelry from them.
I absolutely love my Ad Astra Per Aspera Necklace from Boutique Academia. I've worn it nearly ever day since receiving it. The leather cord can be easily adjusted without removing the necklace and both the cord and the Ad Astra Per Aspera pendant are great quality and will hold up for a long time.
As a women working in a STEM field, I love that a company like Boutique Academia exists, for my sake and also for young girls and women in these fields. Thank you for making these beautiful pieces! I already have my eye on several other items.
I love this simple bar necklace. I love to wear my geekiness understated at times, and this is such a great way to do that! It's the perfect size, it's clear to make out, and I just freaking love it! I haven't seen anything else like this online, and the gift box was so fantastically cute. Definitely will purchase more from this shop.
I bought this as a gift for my sister. She loves it! When the chain I requested for the necklace was out of stock, they reached out to me about it and gave me alternatives which was super nice! Shipped quickly too.
Bought this for my 13 year old niece for her 3.14 birthday. She loved it! Wears it everyday. She had to explain the significance to her friends, who upon learning it, thought it was the coolest gift. It is hard to impress teenage girls...so thanks for this awesome gift!
