Molecular Accessories for Everyday Life

by Carolyn

What happens when a biological psychology professor slash jewelry-designer checks out the work of an optical microscopy research scientist? You end up with an unique line of accessories that shows off the fact that you’re just the kind of person who loves to confuse and befuddle people with trying to figure out just what it is you have in your possession.


ThinkGeek offers the Molecular Keychain and Molecular Earrings. Both feature the photomicrograph of a specific molecule taken by Michael W. Davidson of the Optical Microscopy Division of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Florida State University then is attached to a sterling silver finding using jeweler’s grade sealant. It won’t corrode, it won’t discolor and it won’t matter if you get it wet or not.

Both the keychain and earrings come packaged in a black and silver gift box along with an informational card about the molecular image chosen. A perfect gift for the budding scientist or chemistry geek on your gift list – male or female.

A sterling silver oval (14 x 10 mm) with the photomicrograph affixed is suspended from sterling silver chain on these French-hook earrings. Choose from one of these three molecules: Caffeine (shown in photo), Dopamine, or Serotonin.

Choose from one of these two molecules: Caffeine or Testosterone (shown in photo)

Personally, I like the looks of the Dopamine molecule the best. The Testosterone and Serotonin molecules look like something that would be sold at a Phish festival.
Pick up the keychain for $9.99 and the earrings for $29.99 over at ThinkGeek.
