The perfect gift for professional physicians and graduating medical students!

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!

Earring hooks not included.
