The world is collectively thinking about antibodies right now. These Y-shaped proteins protect us from bacteria and viruses by binding to pathogens' unique molecule, called an "antigen". When your body produces the antibodies that bind to the antigen of a bacteria or virus, your immune system can neutralize the pathogens and keep you from getting sick -- immunity!
If you look closely, the polished steel antibody pendant displays the antigen binding site, the interchain disulfide bonds, the hinge region, the Fab fragment, and the Fc region. In the pendant style that looks like a right-side-up "Y", the chain is attached to tiny antigens at the antigen binding site.
Several chains and colors are available -- you can personalize your antibody to your tastes, even mixing metals if that's your favorite look. First, choose which style of antibody looks the most appealing and recognizable to you:
With antigens (looks like a "Y")
Without antigens (looks like an upside-down "Y")
Then choose your metal color and favorite type of chain:
The pendants are made from polished gold or silver colored steel. They are lead-free and nickle-free. The stainless steel and sterling silver chains are likewise hypoallergenic.
Purchasing this necklace also gives back to the community -- $2 from every sale will be donated to SERT, a local high school robotics team, for buying supplies for 3D printing face shields for medical staff and others working on the front lines of the pandemic.
This scientifically beautiful antibody necklace is sure to become a favorite and a conversation starter!
I ordered this as a Valentine's Day gift to ship to my wife, who is away from home as a travelling nurse. She was ecstatic!

gift for grad students
For my daughter whose doing virus and antibody research.
My daughter in law was absolutely thrilled with her Tardigrade necklace and put it around her neck as soon as she opened her present. She loves everything that Tardigrades represent! Tardigrades are amazing triumphant fellows! Go Tardigrades go! And, daughter in law's too!
P.S. And, her Tardigrade necklace looks lovely on her too!
As a children’s author of STEM picture books these earrings make the perfect addition to my outfits when visiting classrooms. The jewelry created by Boutique Academia is stylish, unique, and best part hypoallergenic.
As a molecular biologist, accuracy is important to me and this necklace is accurate and beautiful. Only complaint is it’s a little short but I got an extender and that was solved. Overall great product.
