There is a wonderful selection of shark jewelry you can buy online. Sharks have become an endangered species and anything we can do to raise awareness of their plight is a good thing. From cufflinks to necklaces, shark objects make beautiful jewelry that we can wear as a constant reminder of this much-maligned but amazing sea creature.
Shark jewelry also makes great gifts for sea-going people too. At the top of the oceanic food chain, the shark is much feared and respected by diver and mariner alike.
A lot of shark jewelry features the shark tooth, which historically symbolised good luck. In centuries past, sharks teeth found fossilized in rocks were believed to be the fossilized tongues of dragons and snakes, and noblemen and royalty wore them on neck-lets to ward off evil spirits and bring good luck.
This fashion fell by the wayside when those 'tongue-stones' were eventually identified as sharks teeth.

All sharks shed their teeth naturally at a frequent rate. It is natures way of making sure they can always eat. The shark tooth is usually the only part of a shark to be fossilized.
The oldest fossilized shark tooth found dates back 450 million years.
Shark tooth fossils are found in sedimentary (soft) rock, on beaches, river beds, riverbanks and sand pits.
Kaoline and phosphate mines are great places too, to look for shark teeth. Currently, there is a healthy market in selling fossilized shark teeth as there are a growing and dedicated band of collectors.

Gold Shark Pendants
These amazing solid gold shark charms are absolutely beautiful. Sleek and powerful, the image of the shark conjures up visions of danger and power combined.
Sharks are nowhere near as dangerous as we imagine them to be. Even the so-called man-eaters rarely deliberately attack a human being.
We don't actually taste very nice to them, and our bones are hard to bite into.
Shark bites are usually caused by a mistaken belief on the shark's part that we are fish or something else that is edible to them.
Often a shark will bite then back off, realising its mistake.
Of course if we are unlucky enough to receive a fatal bite, the shark will return and eat us, because food is food even if its not all that palatable..
However, if we are just injured, the shark will stay away long enough to give us time to get out of the water.
That is the nature of the beast - they are scavengers too.
