Ah, chocolate. Despite its bitter taste, we love it dearly. Perhaps this has something to do with the serotonin and dopamine released into our brains when we eat it. Chocolate has many psychoactive chemicals: sugar, caffeine, anandamide (the bliss chemical), tryptophan, and the favored symbol of chocolate: theobromine.

Theobromine is a mild stimulant related to caffeine that makes up about 2% of cacao beans. It is thought to uplift mood. The name theobromine is derived from Greek words, meaning "food of the gods." I would have to agree. Especially when mixed with spicy chili, the way the Mayans enjoyed it 2,600 years ago.

For the health benefits from the flavonoids and antioxidants in chocolate, choose the darkest varieties. Yum!

These sterling silver earrings are based on the theobromine molecule. The charms are about 3/4 inch long and are attached to sterling silver French wires. Each pair is packaged in a recycled gift box and includes an informational tag about theobromine.

Frequently asked questions about molecularmuse

I can make custom molecule jewelry, if the molecule will work in my style. Prices start around $150 and the process usually takes 4-6 weeks.
Most of my jewelry is high quality, solid sterling silver. It is specially formulated to resist tarnish, but, like all silver, will tarnish. You can minimize oxidation by storing silver jewelry in a bag or box away from air and heat. Regularly wearing the jewelry can help rub off tarnish. I allow the silver serotonin necklace I wear daily to develop a bit of a patina. It's OK to wear your sterling silver jewelry in the shower.
Your order will come packaged in a cute, recycled paper gift box with a little card explaining what the molecule represents. I tie it with a ribbon, making a pretty package for gifting - no addition wrapping required.

If you are shipping directly to the gift recipient, I'm happy to include a card with your gift message. Just let me know when you order.
