  • Handmade item
  • Materials: recycled sterling silver, sterling silver
  • Made to Order

Celebrate a friendship with someone with whom you pair well by giving your friend one side of the pair and keeping the other.

Genes are written in DNA and RNA molecules using a code of chemical units called bases. These bases form pairs, which is critical to their function. In DNA, A (adenine) pairs with T (thymine) and G (guanine) pairs with C (cytosine). In RNA, G pairs with C and A pairs with U (uracil).

The charms are based on shapes of the base molecules. They are strung onto a chain at the place where they would normally connect to the sugar-phosphate backbone.

This set of two necklaces comes with your choice of A-T, A-U, or G-C.

The charms are about 3/4 inch long, are made with high-quality reclaimed/recycled sterling silver. You an choose the chain style you would like: 16" silver snake chain (shown), 18" silver snake chain, 20" silver snake chain, or your choice length of black cotton cord. If you would like two different style chains, please let me know in the "note to seller" section when you check out. Make sure to tell me which molecule goes on which chain.

These come in a pretty, recycled gift box and include an informational card about the molecules.

This is the shop for unique jewelry for us science geeks!! I wanted something to indicate we were a pair and what better way than to share complementary DNA base pairs. The silver is beautiful and its already one of my favorite pieces. Went for the casual look with the black cord which is a nice contrast against the silver. Prices are fantastic, quality, shipping time and design are all guaranteed to please.

These are so beautiful -- exactly what we wanted! My best friend graduates from med school in May, and we've been looking for "non-cheesy" BFF necklaces for ages. These were absolutely perfect, and you can tell they were made with a lot of love and care. Thank you so much, Raven! Love Erin and Jo.

Very fast shipping! Beautiful necklace! The molecule pendants are even more elegant / dainty than I expected. I get lots of compliments on how cute and unique the necklace is. My best friend and I love them!

I was looking for a friendhip necklace for me and my best friend because I am moving out of state. We're both nerdy grownups, so when I saw this DNA base pairs necklace, I knew this was exactly the right thing. I let her take the molecule she wanted and I took the other. She loves it, and it reminds her that she is as precious to me as my own DNA. The quality is excellent. The shipping was fast. And the price, for an original work of wearable art, is reasonable. The only suggestion I have is that the option of a longer chain would have been helpful. Thank you so much for creating just the right thing!
