This treasured Moroccan ammonite, mabe pearl, and paua shell fossil pin makes a unique addition to any jewelry collection. Also wear it as a pendant!
This fossil pin offers the sea's bounty in a wondrous Zealandia design featuring ancient and new materials. The pin also has a pendant back, enabling you to wear it as a mabe pearl necklace. This versatile piece is conversation starter and a delight that will take you back to the coastline every time you wear it.
Moroccan ammonite sizes vary according to the size of the ammonite, a now-extinct marine invertebrate. Little is known about Moroccan ammonites except that they thrived in the early Jurassic period (around 200 million years ago) and became extinct about the same time as the dinosaurs. Today, these fossilized ammonites offer us gorgeous Fibonacci-like patterns in an array that makes them ideal for fine wearable art.
The triangular pieces of paua shell featured in this fossil pin will vary in pattern and hue - you can expect peacock, iridescent greens, and sunset pinks in your particular selection. No two pieces of shell are identical, and the watery ripple patterns help to make each piece of paua jewelry a singular treasure. A touch of natural foliage in sterling silver and 14k gold accent the paua shell's almost metallic gleam.
A cultured mabe pearl symbolizes the ocean in this piece. Mabe pearls are grown on the sides of an oyster shell, giving them a flat back and making them ideal for jewelry setting.
This pin/pendant comes on an 18" sterling silver 1.1mm box with with a secure sterling silver lobster clasp.
