Ada Lovelace, mother of computer programming, was a gifted mathematician who worked with Charles Babbage to create instructions for his "Analytical Engine" (a precursor to the modern computer). Born in 1815, she wrote extensive notes for Babbage's paper, including a fundamental insight that the Analytical Engine, "might act upon other things besides number." Ada envisioned using the computer in ways even Babbage hadn't dreamed of, and is now widely considered to be the world's first computer programmer.
In celebration of Ada, and of women in computer science, we have designed a hand-soldered glass pendant with Ada's portrait on one side, and a quote from her writings on the other. Using lead-free solder, the oval pendant measures 30mm by 20mm and hangs on a beautiful antique-style gunmetal chain. You may choose the chain length: long (32" - good for wearing over shirts and sweaters), or short (18" - good for showing off the pendant on the chest). The pendant is water-resistant, but not water-proof, so wear it while coding, but take it off when coding underwater.
The necklace is beautiful. It arrived earlier than the expected date. It is well made and most of all it is in support of the sciences. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Love my necklace & got one as a gift for my neuropsychologist too & she absolutely loved it!! I'm a brain injury survivor so the details & meaning of what the brain is capable of is extremely important to me. I purchased these to celebrate my 2yr rebirth (anniversary) date of my accident.
I was looking to replace some older molecule earrings from a different shop for some newer ones made of better material. I made no mistake by purchasing through Boutique Academia! They look gorgeous and with myself being a chemist and working in a research and development lab, I get compliments on them constantly! I just have a hard time choosing which ones to wear! I will definitely be looking to buy more soon!
My new DNA earrings draw attention, especially when I wear my necklace of the same. Being so reflective, they catch the attention of admirers. Love wearing them. And the quality, forget imitations, these are superbly made. They just go with anything too.
I got these for my daughter’s 13th birthday and she loves them! She is considering spending her allowance on more of your beautiful jewelry. Thank you for giving her the chance to express one of her loves...math!
I love my tardigrade necklace. Many of the children I work with have asked about it, learned about tardigrades, looked for them, and in some cases found them, and then educated others about them. Fantastic!
I bought the serotonin molecule necklace as a gift for my little sister. It arrived quickly, and already presentable in a lovely box. My sister loves the necklace and wears it every day. Thank you for such an amazing product!
This necklace is just beautiful! I've been wearing it to work and everybody keeps asking me where I got it. It is just as beautiful as seen on the pictures and I love the binoculars detail. I expected it to take weeks for it to arrive in Norway, but I got it really quickly. Anyone who loves travelling or just the world in general should get this!
I love the necklace. Good quality, beautiful design and very nice packaging. It will be a high school graduation gift for my granddaughter who has been accepted toYale Univerisity on a full scholarship. She is majoring in Pure Math so can imagine how excited I was to find this website. No doubt I will purchase again from Boutique Academia and have already recommended it to friends.
