Large Intricate Ammonite Necklace Pair (or Single)
A natural ammonite fossil necklace pair, which is elegantly wire wrapped in sterling silver wire. The geometric fossils are accented with tasteful coils and spirals to complement their natural spiral form. The pendants are hung on silver-plated copper chains and packaged in hand-stamped gift boxes.
These pendants are made with two halves of one sliced ammonite fossil, and is a beautiful choice to share with your other half. The necklaces are currently available as a pair or can be purchased individually.
Ammonites are fascinating sea creatures that went extinct over 60 million years ago; their closest living relative is the nautilus. The segments that form the spiraling pattern are chambers that were filled or emptied with water to allow the creature to control its buoyancy. The beautiful chambers also have proportions that fit the Fibonacci sequence, which is a list of numbers where every number is the sum of the previous two, creating a spiral. The Fibonacci sequence is considered an example of "sacred geometry", and the sequence can also be found many other places in nature (such as the proportions of pinecones and sunflowers).
SIZE: The left pendant (in the main listing photo) is ~ 2.1" x 1.2" at widest points. The right pendant is ~ 2" x 1.2".
Numerous other fossil jewelry options are available in the new Ancient Ocean Collection, including the earrings shown in the last photos. Use the link above to browse the latest collection to see Kosmic Krystals’ new selection of ammonite and fossil coral jewelry.
CHAIN: This sterling silver pendant is hung on an 1.2mm silver-plated copper snake chain. Eventually the silver coating will wear off, revealing some copper color. Many people like specific styles, widths, and lengths for their chains, and often have jewelry boxes filled with their favorite chains. Using plated copper chains frees customers from needing to purchase an expensive chain they will never wear in order to purchase a pendant they love. A variety of high quality sterling silver chains are available from Kosmic Krystals starting at $15 to upgrade your pendant in the Chain Section.
CLEANING: Silver will naturally darken, or tarnish, due to reactions with sulfides in the air. Each piece of Kosmic Krystals' silver jewelry comes with a non-tarnish strip and bag that prevents absorbing and trapping the sulfides and other pollutants in the air. If kept in a sealed bag or jewelry box with your silver jewelry the strip will prevent tarnishing for approximately 6 months. Ammonites should not be cleaned using any harsh silver or gemstone cleaners. Some tarnish can be removed with a polishing cloth, but deeper areas cannot be reached. However, this natural patina can give the piece an interesting antiqued look. Any dirt and debris can be easily removed with a gentle toothbrush and warm soapy water.
