Dramatic Megalodon Teeth Pendants
A megalodon tooth pendant is definitely a “wow” piece of fossil jewelry — who else do you know that owns one of these? These striking shark tooth pendants are made from the teeth of the extinct species of megatooth shark that, at an estimated 33.5 to 58.7 feet long, is considered the largest shark — and fish, for that matter — that ever lived. Megalodon fossils have been found dating back to the beginning of the Miocene Epoch (23.03 million years ago) to the end of the Pliocene Epoch (2.58 million years ago).
Megalodon teeth are similar to those of modern-day great white sharks but are larger and thicker. We offer an assortment of megalodon tooth pendants that vary in size from a few inches to more than six inches. This fossil jewelry ranges in price from under $100 to over $1,500, and pieces are polished or untouched, with crystal designs or a natural look — so you have an extensive variety of megalodon shark tooth pendants from which to choose.
Rare Parotodus Benedeni Pendants
The parotodus benedeni pendants are another variety of our beautiful shark tooth jewelry. The parotodus benedeni shark is commonly known as the false-toothed mako shark and is an extinct genus of the mackerel shark. It lived 53 million years ago during the Eocene and Pleistocene Epochs and was estimated to have measured a substantial 25 feet in length.
Parotodus teeth are rare, valuable collectibles primarily because of the scarcity of these fossils. In addition, the teeth are often found in excellent condition (making them excellent for shark tooth jewelry) due to their preying habits of hunting primarily soft-bodied animals. Parotodus swam in deep open waters away from coasts and shallow areas, so finding any teeth that made their way ashore is uncommon — and you could own a rare piece of history for yourself with a parotodus shark tooth pendant.
Other Beautiful, Wearable Fossil Shark Tooth Pendants
If you are intrigued by a rare parotodus benedeni shark tooth pendant, you should also think about purchasing one that is inlaid with brilliant turquoise. This special style features a high-shine gloss that brings out the tooth’s color and highlights the turquoise inlay. The addition of turquoise to this pendant gives it a charming feel that will make it stand out from your other shark tooth jewelry.
More Shark Teeth to Add to Your Fossil Collection
If you want to expand your fossil collection beyond shark tooth jewelry, we also offer a selection of shark teeth that comes from other species of other extinct sharks, such as otodus obliquus and carcharocles sokolovi. Otodus obliquus is another extinct genus of mackerel shark that lived about 60-45 million years ago, and its name comes from the Greek words that mean “ear-shaped tooth.” Carcharocles sokolovi (sometimes classified as otodus sokolovi) is an extinct species of large sharks that lived during the late Eocene Epoch.
Sharks have fascinated people for generations, and a great way to grow your love for sharks is through shark teeth fossil collectibles. Some great reasons to buy shark teeth fossils are to own a real piece of natural history, to give as a unique gift for a friend or loved one, to commemorate a special trip or occasion, or to simply enjoy the natural beauty of a shark tooth as a décor piece or accessory — like our shark tooth pendants.
Ancient Ammonites and Goniatites – Fossils That You Can Wear
Ammonites are shelled cephalopods that went extinct approximately 66 million years ago, and their fossils are found all over the world. Similarly, goniatites are a genus of extinct cephalopods, but they have a recognizable zig-zag pattern on their shells. Both of these captivating spiral-shelled fossils make stunning pendants that you can add to your own fossil jewelry collection.

Why Wear Fossil Jewelry?
Sure, all the shark tooth jewelry you’ve seen shared is beautiful, but why should you wear it? Wearing shark tooth jewelry began with Hawaiian peoples, who believed that wearing a shark tooth would protect them from shark bites. Even if you aren’t from Hawaii or don’t harbor a love of sharks, a shark tooth pendant is an original, statement piece of fossil jewelry that will set you apart from the crowd.
Wearing fossil jewelry achieves the same thing — you have the privilege of wearing a piece of natural history around your neck. It’s amazing to think that the shark tooth jewelry or ammonite pendant that you are wearing daily is millions of years old.
Natural Jewelry to Add Beauty to Your Everyday Life
If you’re looking to enhance your jewelry collection beyond shark tooth pendants but still want to display items of natural beauty, consider our Baltic amber pendants or butterfly wing jewelry. Baltic amber is actually a type of fossilized tree resin that comes from pine trees, and amber is considered a versatile gem with healing abilities. In addition to being delicate and vibrant, butterfly wing jewelry invokes the idea of metamorphosis and can symbolize transformation and rebirth for the wearer — making the piece all the more special.
