Ammonite Fossil Pendant Necklace, Riverstone Copper Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

If only this fossil ammonite pendant could talk, what a story it could tell!  The EARTH WHISPERS necklace is a wonderfully unique, one of a kind necklace featuring an ancient spiraling ammonite fossil pendant, pale riverstone rounds and copper.  Ammonites, named by Pliny the Elder after the Egyptian ram-horned god called Ammon, lived in the oceans and seas between 240 - 65 million years ago, becoming extinct along with the dinosaurs.  The genuine white and grey ammonite fossil shows up beautifully against the brown mother rock - the individual chambers and natural spiral design of the ammonite can clearly be seen. The ammonite is not exactly centered on the somewhat dome shaped pendant, it’s more to the left side, adding great interest.  The backside of the pendant is flat. Because of the shininess of the pendant’s finish, you can see some reflections in the photos of the pendant. The ammonite pendant is securely connected to the main body of the necklace with a heavy duty copper jump ring.
To perfectly highlight the ammonite fossil, pale riverstone gemstones rounds were used for the main body of the necklace.  Riverstone is a sedimentary rock, a form of limestone formed from quartz, calcium carbonate and other materials. Riverstone is naturally an opaque creamy color and can have dark spots and swirls.  The riverstone was placed in groups of three or five rounds with copper bicones and single stones separating some of the groups. A sleek copper toggle clasp finishes the necklace perfectly. Perfect to wear with your casual clothes, it also will be a stunning piece of jewelry to wear with a little black dress.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the EARTH WHISPERS necklace will definitely set you apart from the normal, run of the mill jewelry-wearing crowd!

Ammonites are associated with change, resiliency, and overcoming obstacles.  Spirals are one of the most ancient symbols in use since at least the late Paleolithic era; they represent the unfolding changes during the journey of life.  Riverstone is said to help relieve anxiety. Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.


The EARTH WHISPERS artisan necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals.
