Orion the hunter is one of the most recognizable and prominent constellations in the night sky. Archaeologists have found depictions of Orion from over 30,000 years ago, and cultures all over the world recognize this star grouping in various forms. It's seasonal appearance and disappearance was in an ancient calendaring. The pendant is small-batch cast from pewter and has been hand hammered and weathered for an antique look. The stars and the Orion Nebula are accurately placed, based on star maps, and are cut all the way through the pendant, down to the smallest magnitude we could manage. The back features the right ascension and declination, reversed to match the stars. As far as we know, this is the only constellation pendant in the world designed to this level of astronomical accuracy. The pendant measures 3cm in diameter and comes on an adjustable brown leather cord, adjustable black leather cord, or steel snake chain.

Anyone who loves the night sky and finds meaning therein
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 got it for my girlfriend for christmas and she loved it!
It’s a bit bigger than the photos made it look which was actually a nice surprise.
Great present - very classy!
Loved giving this necklace as a gift.

This necklace is a Christmas gift for my wife, who has spent many hours with me stargazing over the past 32 years. It shipped fast, and looks good. Now to wait and see what she thinks...
I have written this necklace every day since i received it! The length is adjustable so it goes with different neckline.

I meant to select the Black corded string. Can you make this change for me?
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.
