Bacteriophage Necklace

It's not a lunar landar, as other-worldly as it looks. This is a typical T4 enterobacteria phage, carefully crafted from pewter to be an exceptionally detailed, delightfully unusual piece of jewelry. 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. It measures 1 inch high, and comes on a your choice of an 18 inch sterling silver chain or a 28 inch gunmetal chain. The gunmetal chain is adjustable - the clasp can be latched on any link.

Perfect for:

  • Biologists, microbiologists, bacteriologists
  • Doctors, nurses, med students
  • Anyone fascinated by these tiny universes of life (well... depending on your definition of "life"...)

Amazingly speedy response and beautiful jewelry

The week of Christmas, Boutique Academia had my gift in the mail immediately after I ordered it. More importantly, my Bacteriophage Necklace is beautiful! Thank you for the wonderful service.

Bacteriophage Necklace

Gave this necklace as a gift to my niece who is studying biology and she loved it! I was so happy to find someone who was selling these unique gifts.

It's virus time!

Bought it for a friend who loved it! Very unique necklace.

Excellent quality, SUPERIOR customer service

I originally ordered the bacteriophage necklace, with the intention of making it into a keychain. I was sent by mistake the bacteriophage earrings. I contacted a rep, who apologized and not only sent me a prepaid return sticker, but sent me the bacteriophage made into a keychain! Very easy, great quality, TERRIFIC customer service.
