Each beautiful Ammonite fossil pendant is suspended from an 18″ stainless steel curb chain necklace. Ammonites were cephalopods (related to current day octopuses, cuttlefishes, nautiluses and squid), and lived between 65 and 240 million years ago. The pendant is made by splitting a fossil in two and polishing the exposed area. It is then wrapped in a silver-plated surround. You will receive one of the five pendants in the photographs.
Stainless steel is hypoallergenic, meaning that the majority of people will be able to wear it without suffering an allergic reaction to it. This makes it especially useful for earrings. Other hypoallergenic metals include 24-carat gold, platinum, titanium, palladium, and tungsten carbide, all of which tend to be much more expensive than stainless steel.
