A gorgeous top grade large ammolite pendant--- all hand made.
A large 18x13mm grade AA rainbow ammolite with deep rich colours and good colour shifting abilities. Any white seen on this gem is camera light refection--this beauty is all colour.
is beautifully designed and hand made and as such these pieces will often bear the marks from the tools of the artisan which give them their individuality.
Suspended from a bail also hand made especially for this shop that contains the lucky number 8 in which has been set a pair of 3mm natural round diamond cut sapphires.
The number 8 is considered very lucky in many cultures--so who knows?--we thought that would be a good thing for the buyer along with the beauty of the ammolite!
Not likely any one in your circle will have anything like this or even be able to identify the gem--Ammolite is that rare---many have yet to see it!
I have the good fortune to live where top grade ammolite is mined and am able to select the very best stones right off the cutters tables before they fill orders to the general public.This is why the quality of gems offered in this shop is consistently among the best available anywhere.
In this shop you always get the exact item you ordered—no substitutions as done on TV sales shops etc.
Most silver set Ammolite you see in shops,TV shopping channels and in cruise ships and their Caribbean, Mexican and Alaskan ports of call, where a lot of Ammolite is sold at sky high prices contain lower grade Ammolites as they reserve their best grades for gold.
I prefer to set top grade gems in both silver and gold alike so that my clients are assured that they are getting the very best gems no matter what metal they choose,and offer them at very reasonable prices--often half of bricks and mortar stores, cruise liner retail or TV sellers.
I find that there is a much greater appreciation for silver now that gold has gone stratospheric however I also stock pieces for those who love gold
A note about my listing images.
All my images are taken under professional OTT daylight corrected bulbs in order to accurately show un retouched colours.Viewing these ammolites under different light sources will result in different colours--all still beautiful--but different.
I have received many positive remarks about the accuracy of my images and products like the following from satisfied buyers:
“The ring was beautiful and Simon was very accommodating and helpful when the stone was ruined during the resizing process. I would highly recommend this shop.”- - - -Ryan- - Salt Lake City.
“I received the ring today and it is beautiful. Your picture/description is right on. It is a gorgeous ammonite stone and the setting is perfect. Thank you very much.”—BT--Antioch Tennessee.
I received both of my items and they are absolutely beautiful! I will definitely order from you again in the future and recommend you to my family & friends.Thank you again for your help and patience!
“Love it - it's truly one of a kind pendant. It practically glows in the sunlight. Simon was great - answered all my questions promptly. I wanted to give this to my wife for Christmas. Simon expedited shipping and included a chain free of charge. I shopped around for almost a year before choosing this piece. If you're shopping for ammolite and you're reading this, keep your eye on Simon's shop. These are the best stones for the best prices.”—P. Grand.LA California.
All items are shipped via Canada Post Expedited tracked and insured in crushproof boxes and in bubble wrap shipping envelopes.A little more expensive but quality items deserve quality shipping.
GRADING—Just so you know.
The ammolite industry has yet to fix on a uniform grading system however the following is accepted until it is.
Grade AA….Three or more colours.Bright.
Grade A+….Two colours—Bright.
Grade A …..One colour— Bright.
Grade A- …. Dull.Very dark
The top three grades is all we use… it makes lovely high quality jewelry,the last grade does not.We don’t use it.
Blue is a much rarer colour in ammolite than green or orange.I try and include blue in all my pieces.Another sign of quality.
A very large amount of ammolite of the low A- grade is being bought up by Asian interests,set in cheap silver plated settings and offered and sold online as fine ammolite jewelry.Caveat Emptor!
The popularity of ammolite has grown over the last few years, since renowned Feng Shui master Edward Kui Ming Li began extolling its virtues to his followers.He calls it the “Millennium Stone” and the most important and powerful of stones. Said to promote the flow of “chi” throughout the body, enhance well-being, and reduce toxins in those that own it or wear it.
Ammolite can exhibit up to seven colours—each bring a certain benefit, such as wealth, wisdom, health, growth, or energy. Feng shui practitioners call it the “seven-colour” prosperity stone.”
Buy it for its beauty----- but you just may enjoy additional benefits too!
