Unique Orthnoceras Fossil Ring in Sterling Silver Size 7
History is the witness that testifies to the passing of time. (Cicero)
The Story of This Jewelry: Being the geek that I am, when I hold a fossil, I am 100% captivated by the idea that I'm holding something that has seen the passage of time in a way I can't even comprehend. These Orthnoceras fossils are 200-500 million years old (the lower Ordovician to Triassic ages). The word "Orthoceras' actually translates to "straight horn". These creatures were about the equivalent of the modern day squid. So just holding one of these things and thinking about the eons of life it was exposed to (not that fossils have sensory perception, but you know what I mean)...
It's a statement ring and conversation starter for sure. Sterling silver with a prong-set genuine Orthnoceras fossil.
U.S. size 7.
