Product Description

The perfect gift for professional physicians and graduating medical students!

Ancient mythology meets modern technology in this exclusive tiny Rod of Asclepius 14K gold or sterling silver pendant. Each pendant starts life as a intricate CAD file which is then 3D printed in high-resolution jewelers wax. From this master, a mold is cast by hand and replaced with molten gold. Finally the pieces are hand polished for a smooth, glossy finish.

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!

This pendant is 1" tall by 1/2" wide. The inner diameter of the top ring is 2.5mm, and the weight is 2 grams. Chain not included, so you may choose the length and style that works best for you.
