A double sided reversible silver pendant with Ammonite and Whitby Jet. Hallmarked 925 Sterling silver. Pendant size including top is 50mm. Round stones size are 30mm.
This pendant is handmade in our workshop in Sheffield, where the stones were carefully chosen and cut by us. One side of the pendant is a beautiful piece of Whitby Jet on the other side of the pendant is a piece of Ammonite, which gives you two pendants in one! This piece would look beautiful on a set of pearls and can also be worn on a chain.
As all stones are created naturally, each one is unique and may therefore vary from the image. However we guarantee they are of the highest quality and handpicked specifically for each design. Please note this pendant does not include a chain/ pearls. This can be purchased separately.
Now a little bit about the stones…
Ammonites were predatory mollusks that resembled a squid with a shell. Thes cephalopods had eyes, tentacles, and spiral shells. They are more closely related to a living octopus, though the shells resemble that of a nautilus. Ammonites appeared in the fossil record about 240 million years ago and they barely survived several major extinction events. The last lineages disappeared 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous.
Jet Stone is an organic rock that is created when pieces of woody material are buried, compacted, and then goes through organic degradation. It is then heated, and what results is a coal seam. It’s usually black in colour, but there are also brown-coloured Jet Stones. It can be easily cut or carved, and it has a uniform texture that makes it possible to carve with accuracy. When rubbed and polished to a bright shine, it can have a very nice finish and its aesthetic value is greatly enhanced. You will be captivated by this stone’s beautiful silky glow!
