Orthoceras fossils lived during the Upper Devonian period around 370 million years ago. They lived inside their shell, had tentacles they could use to grab food and used jet propulsion, squirting water to move. These two have been electroformed to have a copper backside and hang from 0 rings to be worn as weights through stretched ear tunnels or fairly heavy earrings for pierced ears. They are approx. 2".
What is electroforming?
Electroforming is a chemical process in which copper metal is deposited and plated onto another material. It is a fickle and tedious process that takes quite some time but results in one of a kind pieces. It encases organic materials in metal so they are sturdy and last forever!
All pieces are intentionally distressed a bit and have a patina (finish) put on to make them look darker and more antique.

All pieces are sealed to prevent oxidation. Oxidation is a normal occurrence in which copper turns green. Should this happen, you can lightly buff it off with a soft cloth.

Do not wear jewelry in the shower or pool, try to keep dry and store in a safe place when not wearing.
