Collection Information

Trilobites were intricately complex and beautiful animals, which is why their fossilised remains are highly coveted. These hard-shelled, segmented creatures existed over 520 million years ago in the ancient seas of Earth and were extinct long before dinosaurs appeared.

Our silver work showcases a variety of unique trilobites from Utah, USA, dating back to the Cambrian Period, which lasted from 538 million to 485 million years ago.

In addition to dinosaur fossils, trilobites have a dedicated and passionate following among scientists and fossil collectors. They are related to modern spiders, insects, and crabs.

Trilobite Earrings

Small little fossil. Not very easy to see a fossil but that's understandable from afar. Very nice proud silver mounting which helped alot. Partner said they looked 'classey'. Happy.


Beautiful earrings
