With Valentine’s Day coming up, you might be starting to think of all things love-related as a gift idea.
We’ve discovered this amazing range of science inspired jewellery that would make the perfect gift for someone who is a science enthusiast. Whether for V-Day, a birthday, a “will you be my bridesmaid?” present or even on the wedding day itself if you want something a little offbeat.
The range has all sorts of science-related themes, but we’ve picked out a few that are love-related.
Often called the “love hormone” – Oxytocin is secreted by the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland, a pea-sized structure at the base of the brain. It is released when making love, kissing, hugging, during pregnancy, in childbirth and during breastfeeding.
Something a little different to a love heart pendant – a heartbeat as you would see one on an ECG.
Serotonin is a brain chemical that is associated with many of our bodies’ systems, such as mood, appetite, and how we perceive social situations. When we are in love, it can make us adopt some obsessive-compulsive behaviour which is why we can’t stop thinking about that special someone.
4. Dopamine Serotonin
Dopamine is another brain chemical that is associated with pleasure, happiness and well-being and is released when we are in love.
