Ammonite Fossil, Sterling Silver Ring.

Sorry, this ring is no longer available.

Here we have a beautifully fossilized, sliced and polished, more than , 000, 000 year old Ammonite.

Ammonites are a large group of extinct marine cephalopods, (very similar to todays Nautilus , although all that remains is the shell) that first appeared in the Early Cambian Era, reaching dominance in the Jurassic Period 200 million years ago
and finally reached their end in the mass extinction of the Paleozoic Era,
about, 65 million years ago.
They were finally made extinct during the extinction event that also killed the dinosaurs, (the nautilus somehow survived.)

So here’s a perfect, Mathematically thrilling “spiral” it’s so “Fibonacci” that you can admire and marvel at the perfection of it, as you wear it. The glowing honey colour is like a well lit amber, but is actually stone.

In fact, at some level it feels like it has come from some distant Alien history,
which I suppose it really has.
A wonderful aid to meditation, putting you in touch with “past lives” (perhaps?)

Take a close look, and check out the detail of this extinct creature. Sadly, some can’t see the magic, but the rest of us will recognise it straight away.

A friend of ours sources these wonderful specimens, dating back to one of the great mass extinctions, then uses his lapidary skills to clean and prepare them individually (finer details like legs seldom survive in the fossil) before getting them hand set for him in Bali, in stylish modern Sterling settings.

He uses refined designs that in no way compete with the detail of the subject,
in this case a simple plain band following the contour of the shell.

We’re hoping for another delivery of these soon, but each one is individual,
and supply is never guaranteed. So don’t hold your breath, waiting.

Check also the Trilobite Pendant, we may still have on this site, too.

The simple 4 mm wide silver band, will fit a size “P” finger (US 18) and doesn’t distract from the elegance of the Ammonite itself.

Age: Contemporary, that is, including a genuine piece that’s at least 65 million years old.

Size: H 51 mm x W 22 mm.

Weight: 9 grams.
