Description

The perfect gift for professional physicians and graduating medical students!

Ancient mythology meets modern technology in this exclusive Rod of Asclepius sterling silver pendant. Each pendant starts life as a intricate CAD file which is then 3D printed in high-resolution jewelers wax. From this master, a mold is cast by hand and replaced with molten silver. Finally the pieces are tumbled for a smooth, glossy finish.

Named after Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine, this universal symbol of healing is subtly different from the Caduceus, which has two snakes entwined about a rod. In professional medical circles, the Rod of Asclepius is considered the "true" symbol.

The meaning of the snake and rod has been lost in history, but theories abound. Perhaps ancient physicians knew about the healing properties of snake venom that modern biomedical scientists are just now discovering? We may never know, but we do know for certain this Rod of Asclepius Pendant will be treasured for decades to come!

Each pendant is is 1-3/4" tall by 3/4" wide. The inner diameter of the top ring is 3.5mm.

The premium wooden box with black piano finish is the perfect way to present and protect your Pendant. We laser engrave our logo on top for an elegant appearance. The box measures 4" x 4" (10cm x 10cm).
