This simple yet elegant gold shark tooth necklace is a must-have accessory for any saltwater, shark, or beach lover. Crafted with a real fossilized shark tooth found by Foxy Fossils in Charleston, SC that dates back millions of years in age, your gold shark tooth necklace lets you carry a piece of the sea from prehistoric times. Each shark tooth pendant was individually selected, hand-painted in multiple layers of gold, and wrapped in 14k gold-filled wire before being placed on a dainty 14k gold-filled chain. Make a bold and beautiful statement with this stunning gold real shark tooth necklace.

Each necklace is unique and handmade so please allow for variations in tooth shape and size; pictures are representative of the necklace you will receive and not the exact shark tooth (although very similar). All teeth were collected ethically, sustainably, responsibly, and legally and a portion of my profits are donated to support sharks living in the Great Ocean Tank at the SC Aquarium. Each tooth used in my designs came from a shark that existed millions of years ago so NO modern shark teeth are ever used.

FAQ

 Frequently Asked Questions

Do you use real fossils in each piece of jewelry?

YES!! Every piece of jewelry is handcrafted using real prehistoric fossils hand-collected by me. Your piece will contain a prehistoric piece of Charleston dating back hundreds of thousands to millions of years old. All fossils are legally & responsibly sourced. 

Do you have to go out looking for fossils in order to create jewelry?

No!! Foxy Fossils is centered around my passion for all things coastal which includes conservation and respecting natural habitats and environments. The fossils used to create jewelry are a small portion of my own personal lifelong collection. No areas are depleted, destroyed, or altered in any way to create the jewelry pieces. I have collected many hundreds of thousands of shark teeth fossils (not including the hundreds of other types of fossils I have found) in my life so far.

Are your fossils ethically sourced?

YES!! Fossils, especially fossil shark teeth, are very abundant in the Lowcountry and can be found almost anywhere! Since some species of sharks can go through ~35,000 teeth in a lifetime (and multiply this by millions and millions of years), Foxy Fossils jewelry pieces do not deplete the natural supply of fossils nor do we alter or disturb the environment, animals or habitats that surround where I fossil hunt. Also, Casey is very keen on marine conservation and habitat protection and all fossils are legally and sustainably collected.

How old are the fossils?

In order for a shark tooth or remnant to be considered a fossil, it must be at least 10,000 years old. Most fossils used in the making of Foxy Fossils jewelry date back millions and millions of years in age. Each piece is so unique, but on average the shark teeth fossils we use date back approximately 5-20 million years ago. No sharks or animals are harmed in the collection or use of any fossils.

If I have a shark tooth I found, can it be made into a custom piece of jewelry?

YES!!  I love creating custom jewelry pieces using a special fossil you have found. The possibilities are endless and I will work closely with you to ensure you are highly satisfied with the design!  Send me an email at foxyfossils@gmail.com or submit your custom order request via our contact form here.

Do you offer wholesale?

YES!! To inquire about a wholesale order, email Casey Garvin at foxyfossils@gmail.com.

Jewelry Care

Even though your jewelry piece features an authentic fossil that has survived millions of years in existence, there are still some things you can do to extend the life of your new Foxy Fossils jewelry to preserve it for many more lifetimes to come!  

Jewelry Care:

  • Remove jewelry prior to swimming, bathing, or working out to prevent sunscreen, saltwater, chlorine, and sweat from damaging fine 14kt gold filled materials.
  • Store your fine jewelry in a separate compartment of your jewelry box or in a cloth pouch to keep it safe, dry, and clean.  You can also store your gold filled jewelry in an airtight container when not in use.
  • Clean with a standard polishing cloth or gently wash with a soft brush using warm water and mild soap to remove dirt and excess oils. 

Gold-Filled Jewelry

Gold-filled jewelry is suitable for everyday wear and is very durable; however, jewelry is still naturally delicate and requires care for maintaining optimal condition and long lasting wear. Gold fill jewelry will never rub or flake off since it consists of a thick layer of solid gold that has been pressure bonded onto a jeweler's quality base metal (usually brass). If gold filled ever develops a tarnish, it is usually a surface tarnish which can be cleaned or polished off.

We recommend that you remove your jewelry prior to bathing, swimming, cleaning, and working out in order to avoid direct contact with harsh cleaners, sweat, saltwater, sunscreen, perfumes, hairsprays and lotions. It is best to put your jewelry on last  if you are applying lotions, hairsprays, perfumes etc. in order to minimize contact with these products. If you wear your jewelry to the beach or gym be sure to gently and thoroughly rinse your jewelry in water afterwards and allow it to fully dry (never put wet or damp jewelry in sealed container  or else it will cause rapid tarnishing). We highly recommend keeping your jewelry away from chlorine (pools and hot tubs) due to its harsh nature on fine jewelry.
