Ammonite fossil jewellery and cufflinks in sterling silver

Finding a unique gift for a loved one, family friend or a work colleague can strike fear into even the most tenacious of shoppers. Certainly, the high street can supply a multitude of ideas, but for those more discerning on the search for something that exudes wow factor, the mainstream just won’t suffice. So, where to begin?

Of course, jewellery has always been a popular option to signify those special people or occasions as we progress through life. Whilst finding the right piece might seem a daunting prospect, here at Hepburn & Hughes, we work tirelessly to ensure that a truly exclusive, one-of-a-kind gift, is quite within reach, all from the comfort of your sofa.

Where To Find Unique Natural Jewellery?

We’re proud that our small family run business, based in Kent and Derbyshire, has created the most exquisite line of fossil jewellery, crafted from prehistoric sea creatures that lived between 240 and 65 million years ago. As you leaf through the gorgeous natural jewellery range, you soon realise that these items are far more than just a necklace, pair of earrings or cufflinks, because they pre-date humankind. And knowing that the fossilised sea creature you’re wearing has been around far longer than our own species brings about a depth of meaning, history and great perspective, as well as a complete sense of awe.

So, if you’ve not considered purchasing one yet, or even been aware that these exist up to now, it’s time to put fossil jewellery firmly on your radar, and if buying British is important too, a fossil necklace UK is an absolute must-have. Take a look at our fossil jewellery collection here:

Fossil Jewellery

Pyrite ammonite pendant

Some of our incredible fossil jewellery is made from ammonites, the majority of which we source from Madagascar and to guarantee their authenticity, each item of jewellery is accompanied with a certificate of provenance.

Ammonites, with their distinctive ribbed spiral and differing shapes and sizes lend themselves perfectly to jewellery, offering an intricate, yet natural design. Couple nature’s wonders with expert craftsmanship and the products are incomparable. You can be sure of your item’s exclusivity too since no two ammonites are the same! And each jewellery design is limited to the number of ammonites sourced, so don’t delay if you spot something you like, because it may well not be there tomorrow.

We also realise that it’s the little things that make all the difference too and we individually polish and package each item by hand before it goes out. With no plastic packaging to ensure sustainability, a fossil ring, pendant, cuff links or earrings make a wonderfully thoughtful gift that the recipient will be delighted to receive.

Fossil Pendant

For an extra special gift, why not treat either yourself or someone else to an ammonite fossil pendant? One of our most popular ranges, a fossilised ancient relative of the squid, octopus and nautilus will draw attention whenever you wear it.

Our fossil pendants and fossil necklaces come in a range of sizes, shapes, colours, and fossils making it easy to match the right one to the wearer’s personal preference. If ammonites aren’t your thing, you might prefer dinosaurs and if that’s the case, there’s a pendant for you too.

One of our personal favourites is our Dinosaur Fossil Pendant which contains actual fossilised triceratops bone, all the way from the Lance Creek Formation in Wyoming, USA and estimated to be 70 million years old. Wear this and instantly feel transported to the Land of the Dinosaurs, and you can’t fail to imagine an epic battle between Triceratops and T-Rex.

Fossil Earrings

Set in a double bezel sterling silver frame and enclosed with sterling silver at the back, our rare promicroceras earrings, sourced from Lyme Regis, are an excellent example of the ammonite, with sharp detail on the spiralled chambers.


These fossil earrings are a no brainer, and even if you’re not a palaeontologist, we’re sure you’re going to fall in love with this set as soon as you see it. Your biggest decision will be which size to choose!

Ammonite Cufflinks
