This striking pendant is sculpted from sterling silver and draws inspiration from old shields and armor. It is inlaid with our 100,000 year old fossil coral, salvaged from an abandoned lime pit in the Florida Keys. Unique, beautiful, and with a remarkable story to tell, this exclusive material is very limited with no known additional sources. The 'Stingray' is offered on a sterling silver ‘foxtail’ chain with an antique patina to match the soft finish of the pendant. Understated, but not to be underestimated.Click for more info

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by mass of silver and usually 7.5% by mass of copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925. The sterling alloy originated in continental Europe and was being used for commerce as early as the 12th century in the area that is now northern Germany. William Henry uses the latest state-of-the-art casting equipment to create mesmerizing pieces that are often considered par with our hand-carved work.
According to geologists, this fossil coral is approximately 110,000 years old. Found in abundance in Florida quarry mines, these exquisite scales are hand-picked findings which would otherwise be crushed and used in cement. Fossil coral is not living coral, therefore has no odors.
