About our Amber Jewelry

 

Amber” is usually used to describe a something that is warm, musky, rich and honey-like, and also somewhat oriental and earthy. Baltic Amber has been used since the stone age, from 13,000 years ago and has been extensively traded along the Amber Road since antiquity till nowadays. 


Genuine Baltic Amber, that is used in our jewelries, is fossilized tree resin, which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times. Baltic ambers are thought to be fossil resins from Sciadopityaceae family plants that used to live in north Europe. Because it originates as a soft, sticky tree resin, amber sometimes contains animal and plant material as inclusions.


Amber occurs in a range of different colors. As well as the usual yellow-orange-brown that is associated with the color "amber", amber itself can range from a whitish color through a pale lemon yellow, to brown and almost black. Yellow amber is a hard, translucent, yellow, orange, or brown fossil resin from evergreen trees.  You may find amber jewelries, such as bracelets, rings, necklaces, at out shop in various colors.
