Collection Information

Trilobites were remarkably intricate and beautiful creatures, making their fossilised remains highly prized. These hard-shelled, segmented animals lived over 520 million years ago in Earth's ancient seas and were already extinct by the time dinosaurs emerged.

Our silver work features a selection of unique trilobites from Utah, USA. These specimens hail from the Cambrian Period, which spanned from 538 million to 485 million years ago.

Alongside dinosaur fossils, trilobites have a devoted and enthusiastic following among scientists and fossil collectors. They were related to modern spiders, insects, and crabs.

Customer Reviews

Based on 11 reviews

They are super well made and probably one of my favourite earrings now. Came with certificate and cleaning cloth and some cool facts about the fossils which I find makes a nice touch.


These are stunning and very well made. For the price they are exceptional. The ones I received are slightly larger than described. The features of the trilobites are easy to distinguish. Would have loved a leverback option as I only wear leverbacks because of fear of loss. I easily swapped wires to leverbacks that I had but would have been nice not to have to.

Also, very nice presentation in the box!
