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.

Bought this and the Dopamine necklace for my wife for Christmas - she loves them! Shipped and arrived quickly, packaged nicely. Would certainly order from Boutique Academia again.

A dear friend of mine is going back to school, and I chose the brain necklace as a gift. She loved it! I really enjoy all of the fun, scientific jewelry for myself and my friends. Keep up the great work!
I have purchased several necklaces from Botique Academia. All of them are top quality, and have a great "feel" on my neck. The Acorn Necklace is the heaviest and largest of the assortment I have purchased. The chain is just the right weight to hold it, and the acorn pendant is unique and fun to wear.
I saw this necklace online and fell in love with it! It was out of stock and I had to wait 9 months, but it was worth the wait! It is even more beautiful in person than in the photos. (When it was out of stock, I asked to be emailed when it was available again. Boutique Academia was faithful and emailed! I ordered right away!) Very happy!
Whenever I'm looking for unusual, inspiring jewelry for gifts for my friends, I always come to Boutique Academia. I love their designs, the craftmanship is top notch and most importantly, there is inspiration in every piece which makes for a meaningful gift.
I recently ordered the Fibonacci necklace for my wife. She absolutely LOVES it! Boutique Academia made the whole process very easy & I will definitely order from them again. Service was very prompt and courteous, shipment arrived in a very timely manner and the quality is top-notch!
As a scientist and a nerd, I bought two earring sets, one of the Fibonacci Sequence and the other Particle Physics. I love them both. They are made well, and people keep stopping and commenting on them. So unique! I wonder which piece I'll get next. (-:
Really love this company and will definitely order from them again. Great customer service, fast order processing and delivery. VERY happy with both meaningful necklaces, Orion and Aries, that I bought.
A five star rating well deserved... Boutique Academia provides a great and efficient service and the Tardigrade necklace I bought, without any problem, is as beautiful as I thought... Love the concept !
fun and good quality stuff! At very reasonable prices!
i am a biologist who works as a chemist with a sister who is an engineer. I love finding jewelry and key fobs that represent what i do. i have been sharing the business cards that came in the box with each item with fellow STEM women. They are also rather geeked about this. YAY! it it about time someone did this!
The pendant has a nice weight to it, and it's the perfect size. Orion was the first constellation I was able to identify, and it remains my favorite. Very pleased to be able to have it near me even when it's no longer in the night sky.
