As far as we can tell, this is the only necklace out there with an antibody and virus that actually fit together in the antigen binding site. If you look closely, you'll see amino acid chains, regions, disulfide bonds, and other features as well. Pewter cast from hand-carved models, these are solid, eye-catching pieces that will be the talk of the lab. The larger piece measures about 1.5 inches at it's widest points. Put them both on one gunmetal chain, or split them up for the most epic science themed friendship necklaces ever. Short chains are 18 inches, long chains are 32 inches.
I ordered it with two 32 inch chains, one for my sister and one for me. But you can also put both on one necklace. The necklace is big enough so you can still connect them together when they're on one necklace. I'm very happy with the fast shipment and nice packaging. The price for the product is really good. It looks exactly like the picture and they're not too small. I'll be ordering science jewelry here again!!
Antibody & Virus Neclace
Bought it for my wife, a professor of immunology, for her birthday. It’s attractive, a nice size (large enought to be detailed, but not so big to be clunky), and she seems to like it.
Where but here can you find a necklace for a relative with a PhD in Microbiology who works in infectious disease? I am quietly lusting after the anatomical heart...prices are fair and shipping is fast and I will be shopping here again and again!
Love this necklace
Ordered the 32 inch chain which allows one to match antigen and antibody. Very cool. Get compliments even from people who have no idea what is being depicted.
Very nice experience shopping at Boutique Academia. Maile was very attentive and nice. The product was delivered quickly and the gift package was lovely.

For a science friend's birthday gift!
I am a biology graduate student, so this was a must!
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.
I bought this for my girlfriend’s birthday coming up. When it arrived, I was pleased by its weight; it does not feel like lightweight, cheap construction so I’m not worried about it deforming if it gets dropped.
We gave one of our purchases, the atom necklace, to my daughters favorite teacher. She wore it the next day and her fellow science teachers all commented on how much they liked it. My daughter chose the blue nebula necklace for herself and loves it! We will definitely be back for more!
From a fantastic design, great craftsmanship, and quality materials this necklace is unbelievable. The best part is the center cover that pivots to reveal the interior of the virus. It is one of those necklaces that people just have to comment and ask about.
The T4 phage earrings are very comfortable, not heavy at all. I don't notice them until their heads brush against my neck... or catch on a scarf or sweater. (The collar whiskers are blunt but snaggy, easily dealt with if you're mindful of it.) (Dear Reader, I was not initially mindful.) I'm very pleased with them, and may have to get the necklace as well. A very fun find.
Bought this necklace for my math and science loving daughter. Not only was it the perfect gift but it arrived only 3 days after ordered and in a box too! Which I thought was nice but my daughter immediately noticed the science and math designs and loved the box too.
