We don’t wish to sound sappy, but we are quite attached to our magnificent amber collection. Actually, sappy might not be the correct adjective; amber is not actually sap, as many people think. Genuine amber is fossilized tree resin---and it is amazingly stunning. We feature a large medley of amber jewelry set in sterling silver, most of which is from the Baltic regions of Poland. What other stone has such a diversity of color, and range of transparency?! Our amber collection features warm tones stretching from golden yellow to honey, and from pale orange to deep red. The hues of our green amber range from lighter shades of sea grass to the deep green color of pine fir trees. Look closely at our silver amber necklaces, earrings, bracelets, pendants, rings, and pins. The selections are most unique—a mixture of both classic and hip styling—like amber teardrop dangles, claddagh rings, dragonfly pendants, and an artist’s palette pin. You will love them all.
A healthy bit of information about sterling silver from our in-house geology expert: Silver is composed of 92.5% silver alloyed with copper to strengthen it. It has one of the highest levels of reflectivity of any metal, giving it unmatched brilliance and making it perfect for jewelry designs. In the past, silver has been relatively abundant and easy to extract from ore, making it relatively affordable for jewelry lovers. At various times in history, silver was even more valued than gold and had a mystical allure to it, often being associated with celestial phases and lunar goddesses. Hallmarking of silver places a stamped mark on the silver to identify its origin and purity. Today, silver jewelry is more popular than ever. Unlike other more expensive precious metals like gold or platinum, silver jewelry can appeal and be affordable to a wider audience. From youthful and trendy designs to the more stately and classic, jewelry made in sterling silver is here to stay.
