About this Product

Unique DNA helix pendant. Inscribed are the base components of life: a repetition of the four nucleotides: 'G', 'A', 'T', and 'C'. This helix consists of twelve nucleotides, forming a single twist of a DNA molecule. Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is the molecule that encodes the instructions of life in all known living organisms. The double helix is captured in an infinite loop, symbolizing the infinite circle of life. The triple repetition of GATC is a rythmic repetition of the four base components of life as well as a tribute to the movie Gattaca. The three repetitions refer to the holiness of the number three in many religions, such as the Three Jewels in Buddhism and the holy trinity in Christianity. It symbolizes the connectedness between all religions, all living creatures and ultimately also the wearer of this jewel.
