I rarely find Orthoceras in a shape suitable for jewelry, and just had to have this one... Ancient black stone heart with 50 year old naturally oxidized silver leaf from a London art supplier (a gift from an artist friend). It all just came together to speak about the passing of time and immutability of timelessness, and the Goth in me smiled.

Black orthoceras fossil heart pendant, with a perfect ancient fossil specimen enhanced with oxidized sterling silver leaf and a 925 sterling bail.

Othoceras are extinct shell cephalopods that lived 350 million year ago. Some of the most beautiful specimens come from the Baltic islands off the coast of Sweden.

Choose to add the 16" 0.8mm sterling silver snake chain as pictured, or get the pendant only.
Gift-ready branded black jewelry box with antique gold branded satchel.
