Leather Necklace with two silver chromosomes and 46XX tile
Art. Nr 002

A bold necklace combining two silver chromosomes freely pendant on each end of a sturdy leather rope. The piece is brought together at the front with a solid block of silver stamped with "46 XX" - the karyotype of a woman (a man would be 46 XY). A karyotype is the number and appearance of chromosomes in a cell. DNA in mammalian cells arranges into packages known as chromosomes, which become X-shaped as a cell is about to divide (during the process known as mitosis). Each chromosome in the design is subtly different, as in nature each chromosome in a pair is inherited from a different parent, mother or father. A matching bracelet is also available.
