Description

Ammonite Drop Earrings - Ammonite shaped pewter earrings with blue enamel on surgical steel hooks.

The ammonite was named after the Egyptian god Ammon and belongs to an extinct group of Cephalopods (which means 'head-foot').The ammonites were present on the Earth for a period spanning over 140 million years. They first appeared on Earth some 208 million years ago, during the Carboniferous period. Large specimens were commonly up to one metre across and weighed up to 100 kg. They became extinct about the same time that the majority of the dinosaurs disappeared. Ammonites were a form of fast moving marine invertebrate, closely related to the modern-day squid, octopus and nautilus. They had a coiled shell, which was internally partitioned into small chambers. Once the ammonite grew too large for its living chamber, it formed a new one next door and then moved into it, in the process creating the characteristic spiral shape of the shell. The unused chambers were capable of being filled with gas to provide buoyancy at different depths in the oceans. It is these unused chambers which tend to be preserved in different colour calcite.

Width: 15mm, Length (incl. hook): 33mm

Shop Safe

SagePay

When you shop with us, our secure server encrypts all of your personal information, including name, address and credit card information. We use SagePay which are an industry leader in secure internet transactions. SagePay are used by thousands of other UK businesses for transaction security.

All transaction information passed between our website and the SagePay Payment System is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. No cardholder information is ever passed unencrypted and all messages from SagePay are signed using MD5 hashing to prevent tampering. You can be completely secure in the knowledge that nothing passed to SagePay can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information.

Once on the SagePay system, all sensitive data is secured using the same internationally recognised 256-bit encryption standards used by, among others, the US Government. The encryption keys are held on state-of-the-art, tamper proof systems in the same family as those used to secure VeriSign's Global Root certificate, making them all but impossible to extract. The data they hold is extremely secure and they are regularly audited by the banks and banking authorities to ensure it remains so.

SagePay has multiple private links into the banking network that are completely separate from the Internet and which do not cross any publicly accessible networks. Any cardholder information sent to the banks and any authorisation message coming back is secure and cannot be tampered with.

No individuals within our company or SagePay are able to decrypt transaction information or cardholder data. Their systems only allow access to our most senior staff and only in extenuating circumstances (such as investigations of Card Fraud by the Police). Your card information is secure even from their own employees because the systems never display the full card numbers, even on administration screens.
