DNA Double Helix Cufflink


The double helix is the symbol for DNA, the hereditary material in all humans and most living things, here rendered in gold and clear, light blue.

The discovery of DNA during the late 20th century marked a milestone in scientific knowledge. DNA carries essential genetic information, which acts as instructions for the growth, development and function of most organisms. It is organised into coiled strands and microscopic examination reveals its actual physical structure to represent the double helix, similar to two serpents entwined around each other in mythological symbols. This is an intriguing, compelling design, perfectly captured in miniature.
